Research Funding

Alzheimer’s Disease Research (ADR)

Deadline:  October 11, 2013

This notice is to inform you of the deadline for grant proposals to Alzheimer’s Disease Research (ADR), a program of BrightFocus Foundation.  Applications for 2014 awards are due on October 11, 2013. Information and instructions for applying online is available on our website at:

BrightFocus provides research funds for U.S. domestic as well as international researchers pursuing pioneering research leading to a greater understanding of Alzheimer’s disease.

The maximum award value of the ADR Standard Award is US $250,000, payable over three years.

Interested post doctoral researchers should apply for the ADR Research Fellowship, a two year award with a maximum value of US $100,000.

All submitted proposals are subjected to peer-review by a qualified Scientific Review Committee, consisting of active academic and clinical researchers from within the Alzheimer’s disease research field.

Preference is made for exciting, cutting-edge type projects that would not, at their present stage, be competitive for large government or industry awards. Typically these awards are made to junior investigators, or to more established investigators who are proposing particularly innovative research.

Eligibility is limited to non-profit institutions, or government research facilities.
