The goal of the American Health Assistance Foundation research grants program is to advance innovative research promoting advances in the etiology, prevention, and treatments of Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration, and glaucoma. This is accomplished by relatively small grants for investigator-initiated research that are designed to allow scientists the opportunity to develop the preliminary data necessary to be considered competitive for larger government or corporate types of sponsorship.

AHAF provides research funds for U.S. domestic as well as international researchers. Grants are awarded on the basis of scientific merit and relevance of the research to understanding aspects of Alzheimer?s disease that lead to improved treatments, prevention strategies, and diagnoses.

Application Details:

The Principal Investigator (P.I.) position on AHAF Standard and Pilot awards are open to tenure- and non-tenure track investigators of any career-stage who are appropriately trained to lead an independent research study, and are permitted by their organizations to manage grants and supervise any key personnel.
