New Funding Opportunity for Computational Drug Discovery

The Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) program is requesting proposals for innovative computational approaches to predict the efficacy of compounds to treat and prevent dementia. Details can be found at the associated URL.

The Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (www.alzdiscovery.org) is a not-for-profit donor-funded organization that seeks to rapidly accelerate the discovery of drugs to prevent, treat, and cure Alzheimer's disease, related dementias, and cognitive aging. We are the largest private funder of drug discovery for Alzheimer's disease in the world, currently funding research in academic and biotech organizations in 18 countries. We also provide research resources for drug discovery including conferences, workshops, advisory panels, and a network of CROs and consultants for drug discovery.

Please do forward this RFP to any researchers or organizations who may be interested in this funding opportunity.
