AIRMA seeks to fund Alzheimer’s research teams

30.03.2006


Association Internationale pour la Recherche sur la Maladie d’Alzheimer (AIRMA) now is taking applications for funding from French-based scientific teams studying Alzheimer’s disease, announced Janet R. Michaels, the organization’s chairwoman.



“Association Internationale pour la Recherche sur la Maladie d’Alzheimer is looking forward to providing funding for French-based scientific teams conducting research on Alzheimer’s disease,” Michaels said. “We are committed to funding research to assist with the treatment and can only hope that this research will lead to finding a cure for this devastating disease that affects more than 800,000 people in France each year.”

AIRMA is offering grants to scientific teams conducting biomedical research and fundamental research on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. Grants will be awarded for a maximum of 40,000 euros a year for a two-year period. The grant can be used for staff, equipment or supplies and will be available as soon as November 2006.


The deadline for 2006-2007 grant applications is June 6, 2006. Interested research teams are encouraged to vist AIRMA’s Web site at www.airma.org for more information or send inquiries via e-mail to info@airma.org.

Eligible candidates must have previous experience with Alzheimer’s disease research and must be working currently on this subject matter at a French institution. Different candidates from the same laboratory may apply; however, the scientific projects must concern different approaches. Innovative approaches and younger researchers are encouraged to apply.

The grants will be awarded based upon their scientific merit and relevance to improving the understanding of Alzheimer’s disease. An independent international scientific committee will review all applications.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
