NIH is inviting applications to expand existing awards from most ICs that are not currently focused on Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and its related dementias (ADRD) to allow them to develop a focus on AD/ADRD. Active awards with project end dates in FY 2019 or later are eligible. The award may not be in terminal no cost extension or going into no cost extension in FY2018.  The award will include $50,000 for AD admin supplements to non-AD grants.
