Funding Opportunity Purpose: 

The purpose of this FOA is to invite research applications proposing to investigate the clinical, imaging, or physiological characteristics of subjects with dementia and parkinsonism (Lewy Body Dementia) using previously-collected data available in the Alzheimers Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI)/National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC) and/or the Parkinsons Disease Biomarker Program (PDBP) databases. Research should focus on identifying clinical or biological attributes that could serve to 1) lead to early diagnosis, 2) improve differential diagnosis, and/or 3) lead to the identification of potential therapeutic targets. Applicants must propose to use data in at least one of the ADNI or PDBP databases, but may include the use of other previously-collected data if such data is scientifically relevant and of comparable quality. Applicants are not expected or encouraged to collect new data.
