New Vision Investigators

The New Vision Investigator Award is granted through the Charleston Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease (CCAD). It is a two-year $100,000 grant awarded to the top CCAD attendees who present their innovative research at the conference. After these two years, New Vision Investigators return to CCAD to present their preliminary findings. This seed funding better positions early-career investigators to secure subsequent federal funding through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Through CCAD, NVR has awarded $1,175,000 in research funding and connected 120 early-career researchers from around the world. Due to the rising cost of equipment, and to better simulate an R03 NIH grant, the New Vision Investigator Award was increased from $50,000 to $100,000 in 2019.
