Joint Pilot Study: ADCC & IME

The Alzheimer's Disease Center Core (ADCC) in the Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center (CNDR) and the Institute for Medicine and Engineering (IME) will fund three pilot projects on biomedical, epidemiological or behavioral research in basic science or clinical areas each at a level of up to $20,000/year (for personnel and supplies costs, but not equipment). These one-year, non-renewable grants support pilot research projects on the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis or management of dementia of the Alzheimer's type or related conditions.

The purpose is to assist faculty in obtaining preliminary data to serve as the basis of a grant application to the NIH or other public or private agencies concerned with this important medical and social problem. Last year's awards and application instructions are on the CNDR website, www.uphs.upenn.edu/cndr/ADCCPilot.html.

A committee representing both the ADCC and the IME will review proposals; funding depends not only on scientific merit, and on the likelihood that the pilots will lead to independent investigator initiated proposals. Priority will be given to:

  • faculty in the early stages of their career who seek to enter the Alzheimer's Disease research arena
  • senior faculty who intend to shift their research emphasis towards neurodegenerative diseases.

Applications should utilize the basic NIH PHS 398 form with a limit of 5 pages (exclusive of literature cited). The deadline is April 15, and questions may be directed to Gayle Joseph, phone (215) 662-4708 or e-mail: viale@mail.med.upenn.edu.
