Grant Description

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support research that evaluates and further develops candidate predictive, diagnostic, target engagement and progression candidate biomarkers of small vessel cerebrovascular disease in human vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID) and vascular/Alzheimer's mixed dementias. Biomarkers development projects funded under this FOA, with support from the Coordinating Center (RFA-NS-16-019), will: study biomarkers as individual projects and concurrently establish the interactive consortium (UH2, years 1-2); and then work together as a consortium to perform collaborative cross-project multi-disciplinary studies to further evaluate and develop the most promising biomarker candidates (UH3, years 3-5) to the point of being ready for large scale multi-site clinical validation studies including towards FDA qualification of small vessel VCID biomarkers for phase II and phase III clinical trials (to be carried out under future separate funding).
