Dementia Research Progress Reports and Bypass Budget Proposals
Each year, NIH issues an annual progress report featuring highlights of NIH-funded Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias research advances. The report provides a comprehensive overview of meaningful prevention, diagnostic, treatment, and care discoveries scientists have made toward addressing the enormous challenges of these devastating diseases.
Additionally, NIH annually submits to the President and then Congress a Professional Judgment Budget that estimates additional future funding needed to most effectively leverage promising scientific opportunities in dementia research. This estimate is often referred to as a "bypass budget" because it is presented without modification through the traditional federal budget process.
