Brown University is seeking letters of intent for annual call for applications for $40K National Institute on Aging-funded pilot projects to generate preliminary study data necessary for investigators to prepare to develop or test interventions for persons living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) using embedded pragmatic methods.

Opportunity: $40K (direct costs) NIA-funded pilot projects
Focus: Non-human subjects or exempt, category 4 projects that lead to ADRD interventions
Eligibility: Faculty, fellow, or investigators
Letters of intent: 5pm ET on November 15, 2021
Invited full applications: 5pm ET on January 31, 2022
Questions? [email protected]

Projects may focus on work at an earlier stage than intervention design or pilot testing, e.g., completing preliminary analyses or eliciting stakeholder perspectives. Awardees receive expert mentorship from the parent grant's senior investigators and, if at an institution on that grant's data use agreement, may conduct projects that leverage extensive national data holdings.

Please disseminate it widely within your networks and actively encourage early career researchers, in particular, to apply.
