Foundation for the National Institutes of Health

Our decade-long partnership with the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) includes co-sponsoring the Research Partnership in Cognitive Aging and three Cognitive Aging Summits with the National Institute on Aging (NIA). The successful partnership has expanded our understanding of how people think as they age.

We recently renewed this longstanding partnership with the NIA through the Foundation for NIH for a third five-year cycle. The new grant opportunity, titled “Network for Identification, Evaluation and Tracking of Older Persons with Superior Cognitive Performance for their Chronological Age,” invites applicants to establish a network to identify, evaluate, track and conduct research across multiple sites on older adults with superior cognitive performance for their age (“cognitive super agers”).

The activity would support aggregating sufficient numbers of these “cognitive super agers” to advance the field’s understanding of the factors that promote sustained cognitive health, as well as those that are not of primary importance.

American Academy of Neurology and the American Brain Foundation

We've partnered with the American Academy of Neurology and the American Brain Foundation for more than five years to offer the McKnight Clinical Translational Research Scholarship in Cognitive Aging and Age-Related Memory Loss. The scholarship encourages the research of young investigators in clinical studies relevant to age-related cognitive decline and memory loss and recognizes the importance of rigorous training in clinical research.
