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:

  • To identify and quantify the range of care needs of persons with ADRD and the economic consequences of ADRD for patients and families.
  • 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

The HEADS Center expects to award 4 one-year pilot grants of up to $25,000 per award in the coming 2022-2023 cycle and is particularly interested in supporting promising post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty. Applicants may be of any rank from Johns Hopkins University or external institutions. Applicants from under- represented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Recipients of these awards may also be able to access their data through the HEADS Remote Data Enclave. Learn more about current pilot projects here.

Download the Request for Applications for full details and application instructions. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions by early April.
