Alzheimer’s Research UK invites applications for its target validation pathfinder grant. This provides funds for small, translational research projects that show potential for an application to the Dementia Consortium or collaboration with the Drug Discovery Alliance.
Researchers who have promising data or projects which are too preliminary to progress with either schemes, would benefit from funding for preliminary validation work or feasibility studies to establish the viability of an approach
Funding & Duration
The grant is worth up to £50,000 (approx AUD $91,400) over a period of one year and may cover staff salaries, equipment, animals, running costs or any combination thereof.
The lead applicant and point of contact must be based in an academic or research institution, either in the UK or abroad. Co-applicants from SMEs may apply. If the lead applicant does not hold a tenure appointment, the application must include a co-applicant that does.
