Boerger Research Fund in Alzheimer’s Disease and Neurocognitive Disorders

Boerger Research Fund in Alzheimer’s Disease and Neurocognitive Disorders — $75,000

The American Society of Neuroradiology funds imaging-based research that advance our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease, help identify new treatment strategies, provide information to improve care for people with dementia, and further our knowledge of brain health and disease prevention.

This award supports investigators at every professional stage and is specifically designed to help talented young scientists establish careers in Alzheimer’s imaging research. All proposals must have a clear focus on Alzheimer’s disease and may also include other neurodegenerative diseases. Ultimately, the goal of this program is to translate the research into strategies to increase understanding of the mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease to help stratify populations and possible treatments. Therefore, animal studies are not appropriate for this request for applications (RFA). Submissions from collaborative research that have experience across aging and neurodegenerative diseases are strongly encouraged. Novel and creative ideas are sought, and proposals should also demonstrate feasibility.
