Grant program focuses on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders


Montreal, QC – The Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRSQ), the Agence Nationale de la Recherche of France (ANR, France), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) have announced the launch of a new program to fund research on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders.

 

This grant program brings together action plans by each of the three governments on Alzheimer’s disease. Endowed with around $2.5 million, the program is intended to support innovative international research projects focusing on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, involving France, Quebec, and other provinces. It will encourage major scientific breakthroughs in the short and medium terms by combining and potentiating the strengths and sources of structural leverage of both countries.

The three research funding organizations will jointly fund a maximum of five projects, in fields where the researchers have already demonstrated their interests and their strengths. The maximum term of each grant will be three years, non-renewable.
