Call for Dementia Researchers to join Alzheimer’s Society New Grant Advisory Boards

 

 

Alzheimer’s Society has for over 20 years funded impactful research in to the cause, cure, care and prevention of all forms of dementia. Driven by the availability of increased funding to support all types of dementia research, Alzheimer's Society are establishing two new standing Grant Advisory Boards for ‘biomedical’ and ‘care, services and public health’ research. The Grant Advisory Boards will make a final recommendation to the Society about research funding in these areas.

Alzheimer’s Society is looking for researchers in dementia research and the broader neuroscience field to consider joining one of the Grant Advisory Boards that will play a key part in the development of their programme. The Grant Advisory Boards will meet twice a year, and work with the society's network of people affected by dementia to ensure the charity continues to support high-quality and relevant research. They are seeking individuals with expertise across the spectrum of research and open this invitation to researchers working in dementia research or related fields.

They are also seeking to appoint a Board Chair to each Panel that will lead in its development and have an influential role in the strategy of the research programme.

You can download an information pack from http://alzheimers.org.uk/researchfunding. Should you be interested in joining a Board, and then they ask you to complete a short expression of interest form (also available via the above site) so that they can ensure a suitable range of expertise across the panels.

Closing date is June 14th 2013
