On February 7, 2012, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius announced that $50 million would be directed immediately to boost Alzheimers research in FY2012 in response to President Obama signing the National Alzheimer's Project Act. This increased funding will likely cover a range of projects, including basic science on the biology and genetics of Alzheimers disease as well as translational and clinical research in development and testing of therapies. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to solicit Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) applications from eligible small business concerns in the area of Alzheimer's disease.
