This opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant funding mechanism.
The goal of this funding opportunity is to establish the role of the brain’s innate immune system, the systemic immune system, and the cross talk and changes with age between the two, in the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
An interdisciplinary and integrative research approach to identify the cell networks and mediators of the brain and systemic immune and inflammatory systems is expected to give greater insight into the etiological mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease.
