Current Request for Proposals (RFP’s)
AFTD Pilot Grant
AFTD provides support for highly innovative basic and clinical research in frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) including: behavioral variant FTD, primary progressive aphasia, progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal syndrome and FTD-ALS. The Pilot Grant is designed to seed original projects, (one clinical research project and one basic science project*) with the goal of generating preliminary data toward a larger grant application to the NIH or other public or private agencies concerned with this important medical and social problem.
Deadline for Applications: July 1, 2014
ADDF-AFTD Drug Discovery Grant
The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration and the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) seek to accelerate and support drug discovery for FTD and related disorders through this RFP.
– Development of clinical, biochemical, or neuroimaging biomarkers to accelerate drug development and early diagnosis
– High throughput screening in novel cellular assays relevant to FTD
– Identification and in vitro testing of potentially disease modifying compounds or biologics, including medical chemistry refinement, ADME, toxicology, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics studies
– Testing of lead compounds or biologics in a relevant model for preclinical proof of concept
Deadline for Applications: September 5, 2014
