AFTD Pilot Grants provide seed funding for innovative research projects in the preliminary stages of development, with an emphasis on early-career investigators in the process of establishing an independent research program. Projects funded through the Pilot Grant program are intended to generate data to support a follow-on grant application to the NIH, another public agency or a nonprofit organization.

AFTD funds three types of Pilot Grants:

  • Basic Science Pilot Grants – These grants support projects focused on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying FTD.
  • Susan Marcus Translational Research Pilot Grants – Funded by a generous donor, these grants support projects using human subjects or biofluid/tissue samples to answer questions about FTD pathology or to advance clinical practice.
  • Well-Being in FTD Pilot Grants – These grants support nonpharmacological therapeutic interventions or state-of-the-art technologies with the potential to positively impact the daily quality of life for persons with FTD and their families.
