The 2019 award is targeting proteostasis and other novel approaches

CLEVELAND – Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals and the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) announce a joint request for proposals for the 2019 ADDF-Harrington Scholar Award. The ADDF-Harrington Scholar Award is designed to accelerate the translation of innovative research that could treat, prevent, or slow Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. This year’s RFP seeks programs that focus on proteostasis targets in addition to other novel approaches for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
“This is our sixth year of collaborating with the Harrington Discovery Institute to offer this unique opportunity, giving researchers access to both funding resources as well as a team of industry experts for project support,” says Howard Fillit, MD, Founding Executive Director and Chief Science Officer at the ADDF. “This year’s award will emphasize the development of drugs for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias that affect proteostasis, in addition to other novel targets. We are at a pivotal time in Alzheimer’s research, and now, more than ever, we need to push forward the opportunity for new drug discoveries.”
“We are committed to advancing promising discoveries into medicines that will help treat or cure Alzheimer’s disease,” said Jonathan Stamler, MD, President, Harrington Discovery Institute and the Robert S. and Sylvia K. Reitman Family Foundation Distinguished Chair in Cardiovascular Innovation at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. “The partnership with ADDF is an important part of our strategy to bridge the gap between basic discovery and the clinical realm, in order to improve the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s.”
Applicants have the opportunity to receive:
  • Financial support up to $600,000 over two years
  • Drug development and project management support through Harrington Discovery Institute’s Innovation Support Center
