Limited Submission: Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (P30 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The objectives of the NIA Alzheimer’s Centers Program are to foster highly interactive, cutting-edge Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias research.


This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for P30 Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers (ADRCs). NIA-designated ADRCs serve as major sources of discovery into the nature of Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD) and into the development of more effective approaches to prevention, diagnosis, care, and therapy. They contribute significantly to the development of shared resources that support dementia-relevant research, and they collaborate and coordinate their research efforts with other NIH-funded programs and investigators.

Please read the full program announcement before preparing your internal application.
