These support new investigators from diverse backgrounds whose basic, clinical and social or behavioural research interests are grounded in the advanced methods and experimental approaches needed to solve problems related to Alzheimer’s and related dementias in general and in health disparities populations.

Projects should target one of the following areas:
  • research in diverse populations: closing the gap, which should be studied by addressing socioeconomic status, values and beliefs, role of the family and community, geographical and regional variation, and interactions among factors;
  • social or behavioural and congnitive or functional focus: evaluating interventions and translating knowledge into practice, which should be studied by considering particular populations;
  • biological focus: causes, early detection, treatment, models, prevention and risk factors.
Anyone interested in applying should contact Rebecca Griffin as soon as possible.

Amount: Up to US$100,000 over two years
Closing date: 24 September
