Awards to USA faculty members at IHEs or research centers to support the development of drugs to cure, treat, and prevent Alzheimer's disease. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to provide drug development support and to help bridge the gap between basic discovery and the clinical realm.

The Harrington Discovery Institute and its Innovation Support Center team will work closely with the awardee and their affiliated institution to maximize the clinical and commercial potential of the selected project.

The ADDF-Harrington Scholar Award selection committee seeks breakthrough discovery defined by innovation, creativity and potential clinical impact, including:

  • Discoveries deemed to address unmet medical needs
  • Modulators of novel targets
  • Potential to be developed into a commercial program
  • Possess strong intellectual property (IP) or protection strategy
  • May be either a small molecule, biologic, or other therapeutic modality
  • Diagnostics or devices only acceptable as part of a therapeutic development project or if completely transformative
