Pilot Grant Program – RFP


The Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center (BU ADC) is soliciting  proposals for pilot and feasibility Studies. New proposals or initiatives for biomedical, epidemiological behavioral, legal, ethical, health systems or other research in Alzheimer’s disease are encouraged. Two NIH funded proposals for $25,000 in direct costs for one-year non-renewable studies will be awarded. The Pilot Grant funding mechanism is intended to support new investigators from other fields eager to bring their research expertise to bear on Alzheimer’s disease, as well as feasibility testing of innovative drug and management approaches. Pilot study support is not intended for large undertakings by established investigators, or to enhance ongoing research projects, which are already funded.
