Oregon Tax Checkoff for Alzheimer’s Research Fund

LETTER OF INTENT DEADLINE: Monday February 6, 2017

 APPLICATION DEADLINE (for accepted letters of intent):  5 p.m. Tuesday April 18, 2017

The Oregon Partnership for Alzheimer’s Research (OPAR) is pleased to announce its 2017 request for research proposals to be considered competitively for funding available through the Oregon Tax Checkoff Alzheimer’s Research Fund. Applications are invited for one-year projects of up to $30,000. We anticipate funding for one grant.

The first step is a Letter of Intent. Letters of Intent will be reviewed during the week following submission and applicants will be notified by February 24, 2016, if a full proposal is requested.

These funds have been made available by Oregonians through the Oregon Income Tax Charitable Checkoff Program. Created by the Oregon legislature, this program has had tremendous benefit to Oregon communities. This research granting program is organized through the Oregon Partnership for Alzheimer’s Research (OPAR), a state-wide program administered through the Layton Aging & Alzheimer’s Disease Center at OHSU. The mission of OPAR is to foster the development of promising research on Alzheimer’s disease in Oregon. Priority for funding is given to investigators just entering the field of dementia research. Applicants may be investigators in Oregon who are launching their careers including senior graduate students (for doctoral dissertation research), fellows, and junior investigators (please review guidelines for further information). Applications will not be considered for established researchers. Special attention will be given to projects that foster collaboration across disciplines or institutions and to proposals that lay the foundation for future federal or foundation grants.

Grants may be awarded to clinical, basic, or social scientists for support of research that will advance the understanding, treatment or prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Appropriate fields include the basic neurosciences, genetics, nursing, social work, epidemiology, sociology, psychology, psychiatry, public health, economics, counseling, delivery of health care services, and others relevant to Alzheimer’s research or practice. The proposed research should investigate relevant scientific questions that will improve our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias and/or that will advance treatment or prevention strategies.
