“At a time when over 11% of seniors suffer from dementia and covid brain fog affects a growing share of the population, research into cognitive health and impairment is ever more important. BrainCheck’s Investigator Initiated Research Grant Program assists researchers developing innovative and much-needed treatments for these conditions,” said Yael Katz, co-founder and CEO of BrainCheck. “By helping researchers find patients earlier in their disease progression, stratify patients by their cognitive “fingerprints”, and monitor their progression over time, we are doing what we can as a company to bring potentially life-altering treatments to fruition.
To be eligible, applicants must hold a faculty or research scientist position at an eligible institution (university, medical center, health system, for-profit organizations, or other nonprofits) by the start date of the award or be otherwise eligible to be Principal Investigator determined by their organization. Studies must be planned to begin within 3 months of the award date to be considered for funding.
BrainCheck will also be in attendance at the upcoming Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC) July 31-August 4 at Booth 309 to provide more information on the BrainCheck IIR Grant program.
