Tracking the landscape of dementia research and resources

The dementia research landscape is wide, varied, and growing. While NIH funds a huge amount of dementia research, we’re not the only funding organisation supporting research to understand the underlying mechanisms of age-related dementias, or to identify biomarkers, or to develop and test therapies, or increase knowledge around patient care.

Whether you’re a researcher, caregiver, or just interested in learning more about Alzheimer’s research, the International Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Research Portfolio (IADRP) [1] is a resource you should know about. A joint initiative between NIA, the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke, and the Alzheimer’s Association, IADRP compiles funded research projects and resources from more than 40 public and private organisations in over 10 countries representing over 4,000 researchers at more than 1,000 awardee organisations. With information accessible through a searchable database, IADRP tracks current and emerging areas of dementia research to report how funding is allocated, to help identify potential scientific gaps, and to inform the paths that allow different organisations to collaborate.
