Infectious Disease Society of America Foundation: Curing Alzheimer’s Disease

The IDSA Foundation is excited to announce the availability of up to five (5) $100,000 grant awards for investigators interested in research explicitly directed toward whether an infectious agent or microbial mechanism is responsible for triggering or driving Alzheimer’s Disease. These awards will provide seed funding to encourage innovative projects that will lead investigators to initiate promising new directions in Alzheimer’s-related research that may enable them to compete successfully for national research grants. Targeted projects may rest in basic, translational, epidemiologic, or clinical research that seeks to answer fundamental questions about whether an infectious factor or process leads to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Deadline: November 30, 2019
