Penn Medicine Town Hall Meeting on ADRD Funding Opportunities

On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine’s Institute on Aging (IOA), Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research (CNDR), and Penn Translational Neuroscience Center (PTNC) co-hosted their first Town Hall Meeting, open to all interested University of Pennsylvania researchers.

The idea behind this joint effort is to increase the awareness and knowledge of the variety of available National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding opportunities relating to Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders (ADRD) and the neurosciences, with many already underway here at Penn.
