November 30 Deadline For $500,000 in Research Grants

Researchers have long sought the cause and worked to develop a cure for Alzheimer’s disease without significant success. Some evidence suggests that it may be triggered or driven by an infectious agent or microbial mechanism. Through partnership with Alzheimer’s Quest, Inc., and The Benter Foundation, the IDSA Foundation is offering up to five one-time, $100,000 grants to researchers working to identify a microbial link to Alzheimer’s disease.

To be eligible for a grant, research must be narrowly focused on identifying the possible role of an infectious agent or agents in causing Alzheimer’s disease. Awards will support innovative research, including basic, clinical and/or non-traditional approaches. The application period for the grant will remain open through Nov. 30. Grants are open to both IDSA and non-IDSA members. Learn more and apply today!
