TBI in AD/ADRD: Encourage research collaborations (Milestone 1.N)

In Progress

Timeline Start - End

2020 - 2026

Research Implementation Area

Population Studies and Precision Medicine

AD-Related Dementias Focus

Promote collaboration among TBI and dementia researchers through working groups, retrospective and prospective data and measurement harmonization, and interdisciplinary research. 

Success Criteria

  • Convene a meeting of TBI and AD/ADRD researchers including trainees and other interdisciplinary researchers with a focus on data harmonization and data sharing. 
  • Add TBI assessments to at least one AD/ADRD cohort study. 
  • Add AD/ADRD assessments to at least one TBI cohort study. 

Summary of Key Accomplishments

NIH’s AD/ADRD program is exploring opportunities to develop cross-training and career enhancement programs such as K (PAR 19-238) awards. These opportunities have the potential to bring junior researchers with a diverse scientific background (e.g., TBI) into the field of AD/ADRD. In an effort to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations, NINDS also seeks opportunities to support existing TBI and AD/ADRD cohort studies such as NOT-NS-22-002.

The key accomplishments summary is current as of July 2022.
