Application Deadline: Tuesday, October 31, 2017
The focus of the 2017 request for applications is Lewy Body Disease and its complications. The disease complex is also known as dementia with Lewy bodies and remains the second most common type of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease. This request is for basic and translational research that will develop a new program of study focused on the cause, the pathogenesis, and possible treatments of disease. Examples for study include the mechanisms underlying the formation of the protein deposits, how they develop in nerve cells in specific brain subregions, relevant animal models for study, and/or biomarker investigations that will aide in unraveling disease formation.
This grant is a single award up to $100,000 ($50,000 year/two years) supporting an interdisciplinary research team for studies and is open to all University of Nebraska campuses. Model systems for study and partnerships between basic and applied clinical studies are encouraged.
