The National Institute on Aging intends to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for NIA-designated Alzheimer’s Disease Centers (ADCs) to foster research on the nature of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and serve as major sources of development of more effective approaches to prevention, diagnosis, care and therapy. ADCs are expected to contribute significantly to the development of shared resources that support dementia relevant research, collaborate and coordinate their research efforts with other NIH-funded programs and investigators, and disseminate research findings for the benefit of the community. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. The FOA is expected to be published in Fall 2017 with an expected application due date in Spring 2018. This FOA will utilize the P30 activity code. This will require existing NIA-funded P50 Alzheimer’s Disease Centers to convert their operations by applying for the P30 FOA in the final year of their current P50 award.
