Drug Discovery Program
Seeks to fund promising preclinical drug discovery and biomarker development programs for Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias and cognitive aging. The ADDF typically supports one year of research at a time, with potential for future follow-on funding. Funding can range from $150,000-$600,000 for a preclinical project depending on the stage of research and must be justified based on the scientific work plan. In some cases, multi-year proposals can be considered.
Program to Accelerate Clinical Trials (PACT)
The goal of this RFP is to increase the number of innovative pharmacologic interventions tested in clinical studies for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. The average award is up to $5 million based on stage and scope of research. Depending on the availability of funds, in certain cases, well-justified larger budgets may be considered.
Biomarkers Development
This RFP seeks to support the development of CSF and neuroimaging biomarkers for multiple contexts of use. One year with potential for follow-on funding; average award is $150,000-$600,000 based on stage and scope of research.
Prevention Beyond the Pipeline
The ADDF seeks to support comparative effectiveness research, prevention clinical trials, and epidemiological studies that probe whether the use or choice of drugs alters the risk for dementia or cognitive decline. Awards range between $50,000-$100,000 for epidemiological analyses based on scope of research, and can reach up to $3 million for clinical trials based on stage and scope of research.

The trials must address questions within the mission and research interests of the NINDS and may evaluate drugs, biologics, and devices, as well as surgical, behavioral and rehabilitation therapies. Information about the mission and research interests of the NINDS can be found at the NINDS website.
NINDS Efficacy Clinical Trials (U01)
he purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage grant applications for  investigator-initiated clinical trials to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to establish the efficacy (or compare the effectiveness) of treatment interventions. Budgets must reflect the actual needs; maximum request cannot exceed 5 years.
Promoting Research in Basic Neuroscience (R01)
The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate research addressing fundamental questions in basic neuroscience. Budgets must reflect the actual needs; maximum request cannot exceed 5 years.
Prevention Research in Mid-Life Adults (R01)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks to stimulate research on mid-life adults (those 50 to 64 years of age) that can inform efforts to optimize health and wellness as individuals age, and prevent illness and disability in later years. Budgets must reflect the actual needs; maximum request cannot exceed 5 years.
Pregnancy in Woman with Disabilities (R01)
Areas of interest also include studies to inform preconceptional and antenatal counseling and strategies for addressing barriers to prenatal care, and management of pregnancy, the puerperium, and the transition to parenthood in order to optimize outcomes for women with physical, intellectual and developmental, and/or sensory disabilities and their families. Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.

Biobehavioral and Technological Interventions to Attenuate Cognitive Decline in Individuals with Cognitive Impairment or Dementia (R01): The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to stimulate clinical research focused on biobehavioral or technological interventions to attenuate cognitive decline in individuals with dementia (such as Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, vascular dementia), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or disease- or age-related cognitive decline. There is particular interest in interventions that can be implemented in community settings by the affected individual, informal caregivers, or others in the community. Research to inform the development of such interventions is also of interest, as well as research examining underlying mechanisms and biomarkers associated with response to interventions. It is anticipated that the results of this research will help affected individuals maintain independence and quality of life, improve their ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), and additionally help to reduce stress, burden, and other poor outcomes in their caregivers.

High Throughput Screening (HTS) to Discover Chemical Probes (R01): Through this FOA, NIH wishes to stimulate research in 1) discovery and development of novel, small molecules for their potential use in studying disease treatments relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes, and 2) discovery and/or validation of novel, biological targets that will inform studies of disease mechanisms. Emphasis will be placed on projects that provide new insight into important disease targets and processes.

Preclinical Research on Model Organisms to Predict Treatment Outcomes for Disorders Associated with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (R01): Budgets for direct costs of up to $499,999 per year may be requested. Project period may not exceed 5 years. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages applications from institutions/ organizations addressing preclinical research in model organisms of neurodevelopmental disorders. Applications submitted to this FOA should propose to develop, validate, and/or calibrate outcome measures, surrogate markers, and biomarkers in model organisms that can inform and effectively translate to human clinical trials for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
