Expected Number of Awards:
Recent findings have raised the hypothesis that systemic immune responses could play direct or indirect roles in brain neurodegeneration leading to AD/ADRD, and has been significantly less studied compared to innate immune mechanisms such as microglia in the brain. This initiative will capitalize on growing interest in the research community and will support partnerships and new collaborations between neuroscientists and immunologists to expand the research base in this area with the long-term goal of bringing more immunology expertise into the AD/ADRD field. This is a new initiative seeking research into the role of systemic immune responses and inflammation in AD/ADRD. Individual projects are sought and collaborations between neuroscientists with expertise in AD/ADRDs and immunologists will be highly encouraged. Through these awards, a more solid research base in this area will be established that can support further work in this area through investigator-initiated and other mechanisms.
