The Hopkins Economics of Alzheimer’s Disease & Services (HEADS) Center stimulates and coalesces population-based research that identifies, quantifies, and addresses economic and care systems challenges posed by Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). 

We invite applications for pilot grants related to our two themes:

(1)   To identify and quantify the range of care needs of persons 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.

We expect to award 4 one-year pilot grants of up to $25,000 per award in the coming 2022-2023 cycle. We 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. We encourage applicants from under-represented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities.

Recipients of these awards may also be able to access their data through the HEADS Remote Data Enclave. 

Register here for our upcoming Pilot Award Application Information Session Webinar on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 1-2pm EST (attendance 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.
