Development Projects

These development projects are aimed to provide seed money for faculty investigators to explore the feasibility of Alzheimer's disease studies and to obtain sufficient preliminary data to seek support through other funding mechanisms. They are specifically designed to foster the work of young investigators (including both assistant professors and associate research scientists) beginning a career in Alzheimer's research.
