Accelerating Medicines Partnership® Program for Alzheimer’s Disease (AMP® AD 2.0)

The Accelerating Medicines Partnership® Program for Alzheimer's Disease (AMP® AD) program is a precompetitive partnership among government, industry, and nonprofit organizations to transform the current model for developing new diagnostics and treatments for Alzheimer's disease. The goal of the second iteration of this transformative partnership is to expand the open-science, precompetitive enterprise and enable a true precision medicine approach to target and biomarker discovery.

This will be achieved by leveraging the investment by the National Institute on Aging in a series of foundational grants in the following strategic directions:

  • Expand the molecular profiling in brain, CSF, and blood samples from diverse cohorts
  • Generate longitudinal immunologic profiling data to enable dynamic modeling of the disease trajectory
  • Expand the existing single-cell/single nucleus molecular profiling efforts to build predictive models of the disease at single cell resolution

The foundational grants support the AMP AD Data Coordinating Center at Sage Bionetworks and seven multi-institutional and highly cross-disciplinary research teams.

AMP AD 2.0 Governance

The AMP program is a multi-sector partnership managed by the FNIH. NIH and industry partners share expertise and resources in an integrated governance structure that enables the best-informed contributions to science from all participants.

The AMP AD Steering Committee convenes monthly to discuss project plans and review ongoing progress and milestones. The AMP AD Steering Committee is managed by the FNIH, and it consists of representatives from NIA, NINDS, FDA, and private partner organizations. NIA program staff members provide scientific and administrative direction and oversee the cooperative grants that constitute the foundation for the AMP AD 2.0 program.

ACCELERATING MEDICINES PARTNERSHIP and AMP are registered service marks of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
