About the AARG-D-NTF research grant

The AARG-D-NTF grant program aims to fund investigators who are new to Alzheimer’s and all dementia fields of research. Individuals who are new to the field of neuroscience or neurodegeneration (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy body dementia, etc.) will be considered for this program. The program’s goal is to provide an opportunity for investigators with expertise outside neurodegenerative research to apply their expertise to advance and accelerate Alzheimer’s and all other dementia research.

The objective of this award is to increase the number of highly trained investigators from diverse backgrounds whose basic, clinical and social/behavioral research interests are grounded in the advanced methods and experimental approaches needed to solve problems related to Alzheimer’s and all other dementias in general and in health disparities populations. The Alzheimer’s Association recognizes the need to increase the number of scientists from underrepresented groups participating in biomedical and behavioral research. We anticipate that by providing these research opportunities, the number of scientists from underrepresented groups entering and remaining in biomedical research careers in Alzheimer’s and all other dementia will increase.
