The Zenith Fellows Award Program (Zenith)

The objective of the 2017 Zenith Fellows Awards competition is to provide major support for investigators who have:

  • Contributed significantly to the field of Alzheimer’s disease research,
  • Made significant contributions to other areas of science and are now beginning to focus more directly on problems related to Alzheimer‘s disease, and
  • Are likely to make substantial contributions in the future.

 

The proposed research must be “on the cutting edge” of basic science or biomedical research and thus may not conform to current conventional scientific wisdom or may challenge the prevailing orthodoxy. The proposed research should address fundamental problems related to early detection, etiology, pathogenesis, treatment and/or prevention of Alzheimer‘s disease.

 

Each award is limited to $450,000 (direct and indirect costs) for three years. Requests in any given year may not exceed $250,000 (direct and indirect costs).

American Federation for Aging Research

The New Investigator Awards in Alzheimer's Disease

Funded by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, the major goal of this partnership program is to support important research in areas in which more scientific investigation is needed to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. The program also serves to encourage junior investigators in the United States and Israel to pursue research and academic careers in the neurosciences, and Alzheimer's disease and healthy brain aging in particular.

 

The program will fund applications in basic, translational and clinical research related to Alzheimer’s disease and healthy brain aging. Research that shows high promise for translating basic biomedical knowledge to prevention or new treatments is of particular interest.

 

It is anticipated that up to 3 grants of $100,000 each will be awarded in 2017. Applicants may propose to use the award over the course of one or two years as justified by the proposed research. Up to 8% of funds may be budgeted for overhead or indirect costs (not to exceed $7,407). Funding will begin July 1, 2017.

March of Dimes

Basil O’Connor Starter Scholar Research Award

Named for the first March of Dimes chairman and president, the Basil O’Connor Starter Scholar Research Award (BOC) is designed to support young scientists embarking on their independent research careers. Applicants’ research interests should be consonant with those of the March of Dimes’ mission: The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The March of Dimes defines a birth defect as any abnormality of structure or function, whether inherited or acquired in utero, and presenting in infancy or early childhood. Reproductive health of women and men as an underlying basis of birth defects, i.e. preconceptional events, perinatal course, and premature births are appropriate subjects for research support. Relevance is interpreted broadly to include fundamental cell biology (embryogenesis, cell lineage, organ differentiation), genetics and genomics, molecular and clinical pathogenesis of disorders of importance to mothers and infants, biomedical engineering and imaging, and social and behavioral aspects. Each application should be accompanied by a Letter of Support from a Nominator (see below).

 

The award is $150,000 for 2 years, including 10 percent indirect costs to sponsoring institutions.
