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.
