Office for Strategic Development and Partnerships
The central goals of the Office for Strategic Development and Partnerships are to enable an integrated approach to program development on all aspects of brain aging, Alzheimer's disease, and related dementias to accelerate therapy development and to facilitate the Division of Neuroscience's collaborations. The office facilitates collaborations within NIH and with other federal and nonfederal funding agencies supporting Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias research, as well as the division’s participation in public private partnerships. The office also supports the continued development of portfolio analyses tools and coordinates a number of strategic planning activities tied to achieving the research goals of the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease. This includes the development of tools and best practices for participant engagement, recruitment, and retention in clinical trials and studies.
