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: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
