Request for Applications: Duke/UNC ADRC Norins Pilot Awards for Alzheimer’s Research
The purpose of these $50,000 pilot awards is to stimulate and support collaborative, innovative research on the potential role of microbes or pathogens in the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Letters of intent are due by July 12, 2021
The Duke University and the University of North Carolina Alzheimer’s Disease Research Collaborative (Duke/UNC ADRC) brings together leading researchers in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias across two major research institutions.
Together, we aim to catalyze and support research, innovations in clinical care and academic work force development (with North Carolina Central University, East Carolina University and UNC Pembroke as partner institutions) in this field. Our ultimate purpose is to reduce the burden of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias regionally and nationally. The outstanding scientific environment at both institutions enables novel research to identify effective methods of prevention and/or early intervention, and to reduce racial and urban/rural disparities associated with dementia.
