The goal of CART is to encourage exploratory and developmental Alzheimer’s Disease research projects within the United States. This is accomplished by providing financial support for the early and conceptual plans of those projects that may not yet be supported by extensive preliminary data, but have the potential to substantially advance biomedical research. These projects should be distinct from those designed to increase knowledge in a well-established area unless they intend to extend previous discoveries toward new directions or applications.
Applications are received annually and a scientific review panel selects a maximum of 15 finalists deemed to have the highest merit. Those selected are invited to submit a subsequent standard grant application, from which the final recommendations are made by the review group. The final selections are made by the CART Fund Executive Committee.
