2024-25 Rutgers Krieger Klein Alzheimer’s Research Center Pilot Grant Program

Introduction: The Rutgers Krieger Klein Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center in the Brain Health Institute is excited to announce our 2024-25 pilot grants program, via a generous gift from the “Remember Meinc, Fighting Alzheimer’s” Foundation. This initiative aims to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research focusing on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) within the Rutgers community. By supporting projects at the intersection of basic science and clinical research, we aim to accelerate the development of therapies and interventions for ADRD.

The mission of the AD Research Center is founded in a patient-centered philosophy and aims to find treatments and interventions to prevent, delay and treat ADRD. Our center’s research program also aims to identify novel early indicators of cognitive decline.

The successful application for this pilot grant will describe how the proposed work will make impactful and innovative contributions to understanding ADRD and ultimately lead to improved outcomes for individuals with ADRD and their caregivers, even if improved outcomes are not a specific aim of the proposed project.

    Full applications must be received by 5 p.m. ET, 6/15/2024.
