Accelerating Drug Discovery for Frontotemporal Degeneration RFP

The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) and The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) seek to accelerate this progress by supporting innovative small molecule and biologic (antibodies, oligonucleotides, peptides, gene therapy etc.) drug development programs for FTD through this request for proposals (RFP).

Funding

The average duration of the award is one year with potential for follow-on funding, and the average award amount is $100,000-$150,000 based on stage and scope of research.
