RFA-AG-24-013 invites R25 applications to fund hands-on summer research education experiences in AD/ADRD.

These two NOFOs share a goal of incubating and developing the next generation of researchers in AD/ADRD, an area that is mission-critical for the NIA. Additionally, they both aim to enhance the diversity of early-stage researchers in AD/ADRD by providing paid research education experiences in environments that are inclusive, supportive, and safe.
