A key focus of this award program is to accelerate innovative digital biomarker collection and sharing across the ADRC Program and beyond to advance AD/ADRD research and discovery and leverage technology to capture more data with less burden for participants and ADRCs.
The selection committee will choose one to three pilot projects and award between $250,000 to $ 1,000,000 (direct costs, 15% indirect cap) for one to two-year digital pilot projects. Award amounts will be based on the stage and scope of the pilot projects proposed. Funding will be provided for pilot projects that leverage technology to enable richer and more objective data collection with less burden for participants and ADRCs and that advance the development and validation of digital biomarkers.
Data Sharing Requirements:
All data generated or used in each pilot project must be made accessible to the research community through the National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC) Data Platform.
Please note: Pilot projects and their partnering companies are expected to share raw digital data files with NACC.
