Small Vessel Vascular Contributions to Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID) Biomarkers Consortium: Coordinating Center (U24)


The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to establish the Coordinating Center for the new Small Vessel Vascular Contributions to Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID) Biomarkers Consortium. This FOA together with its companion FOA ("Small Vessel VCID Biomarkers Development Projects"; RFA-NS-16-020) establish the Small Vessel VCID Biomarkers Consortium. The Coordinating Center will consist of: (i) an Administrative Core responsible for organizing, coordinating and administratively driving Consortium activities; and (ii) a Data Core that will coordinate, receive, collect, and share data, including de-identified clinical data, from Small Vessel VCID Biomarker Development projects (see RFA-NS-16-020). A Milestone Plan with timelines is required in all applications. The timeline and milestones will be used to evaluate applications not only in peer review but also in consideration of the awarded project for funding of non-competing award years.
