Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers, health professionals, and scientists to investigate the connection between Alzheimer's disease and microbial agents. Funding is intended for research related to the link between infectious or microbial mechanisms and Alzheimer's, and to advance original research related to Alzheimer's disease and microbial triggers. All awards must be narrowly focused on elucidating the possible roles of infectious agents in the causation of Alzheimer's disease.
This is a one-time grant award to obtain preliminary data to facilitate development of a research proposal for submission to the NIH or other foundations or institutions for further funding.
These awards will provide seed funding to encourage innovative projects that will lead investigators to initiate promising new directions in Alzheimer's-related research that may enable them to compete successfully for national research grants. Targeted projects may rest in basic, translational, epidemiologic, or clinical research that seeks to answer fundamental questions about whether an infectious factor or process leads to the development and progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Allowable categories for expenditures include personnel (salary and fringe benefits), supplies, services (e.g., data analysis, genomic/microbiome sequencing costs, statistical support among others), animal care.
The IDSA Foundation strongly encourages applications by women, people of color, under-represented populations and those who have experienced varied and non-traditional career trajectories.
