NEW RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY: Alzheimer’s Disease and it’s potential connection to ID

The IDSA Foundation is excited to announce the availability of grant funding for investigators interested in research explicitly directed toward whether an infectious agent or microbial mechanism is responsible for triggering or driving Alzheimer’s Disease. 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.

This is a 12-month award with funding not to exceed $50,000. It is anticipated that up to two grants will be awarded in 2018.

The Request for Applications is NOW OPEN! Please contact foundation@idsociety.org for more information. Funding is supported by a grant from Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc.
