|At today’s meeting of the Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Research, Care, and Services, NIA Director Dr. Richard Hodes presented the NIH FY 2025 Professional Judgment Budget, “A New Era: Driving Momentum in Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Research.” The Professional Judgment Budget narrative outlines examples of prospective research opportunities that could be supported with additional funds in FY 2025. Examples of future research opportunities are organized across six broad scientific categories: Epidemiology/Population Studies Disease Mechanisms Diagnosis, Assessment, & Disease Monitoring Translational Research & Clinical Interventions Dementia Care & Impact of Disease Research Resources The FY 2025 Professional Judgment Budget also emphasizes significant cross-cutting research efforts centered on international studies.
For FY 2025, additional NIH resources needed for new Alzheimer’s and related dementias research are $318 million, which would bring the total FY 2025 NIH resource needs for AD/ADRD research to $4.07 billion.
NIH also released today a companion document, the 2023 NIH Scientific Progress Report, “Advancements Build Momentum: 10 Years of Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Research,” which summarizes significant NIH-funded dementia research advances from the last ten years.
NIA’s Office of Legislation, Policy, and International Activities (OLPIA) and Office of Communications and Public Liaison (OCPL) will hold a webinar for stakeholders on Tuesday, August 8, from 1:00—2:00 pm ET to review the FY 2025 Professional Judgment Budget and the 2023 Progress Report, as well as answer any questions you may have.
