The HEADS Center supports and promotes population-based research that identifies, quantifies, and addresses economic and care systems challenges around Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD).The HEADS Center has issued a call for proposals for 2022-2023 pilot grants related to two themes:

  1. To identify and quantify the range of care needs of people with ADRD and the economic consequences of ADRD for patients and families.
  2. To examine how the organization, financing, and delivery of services affects accessibility, affordability, quality, and equity of ADRD care.

Racial disparities and caregiving are cross-cutting areas of interest within each theme.

The Center expects to award four one-year pilot grants of up to $25,000 per award in the coming 2022-2023 cycle. They are particularly interested in supporting promising post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty, but applicants may be of any rank from Johns Hopkins University or external institutions. Applicants from under-represented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities, are encouraged to apply.

Register here for the Pilot Award Application Information Session Webinar on Wednesday, November 3, 2021. Attendance is strongly encouraged, but not required. You will learn about HEADS Center pilot awards, the application process for this upcoming cycle, and have the opportunity to ask the Pilot Core leadership questions.

Applicants will be notified of funding decisions in early April 2022.
