logo Michigan Center for Contextual Factors in Alzheimer’s Disease (MCCFAD)The Michigan Center for Contextual Factors in Alzheimer’s Disease (MCCFAD), a National Institute on Aging funded Alzheimer’s Disease-related Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (AD-RCMAR), announces the 2022 research career enrichment program involving seminar participation and mentoring in AD-relevant research. We invite applications from those interested in enhancing their knowledge of contextual factors in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD). Funds are available for investigator-initiated research projects that support the development of independent NIH-funded projects. Proposals with high likelihood of advancing research on ADRD disparities, especially among Arab Americans and Latinos, are particularly encouraged.

Three proposals will be selected to receive funds of up to $30,000 for one year with the grant period beginning on July 1, 2022. It would be greatly appreciated if you could please distribute this announcement within your department and/or program.

Please see the attached announcement for full details. Completed applications and budget (Detailed Budget link) should be emailed as a single pdf attachment to by 11:59pm on January 10, 2022. If you have questions, please email Thank you!
