Grants to USA, Canada, and International academic medical centers and universities, nonprofit organizations, and biotechnology companies for drug development programs. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support innovative small molecule and biologic drug development programs for frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

There are currently no FDA approved disease-modifying treatments available for frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and symptomatic treatments only provide limited benefit for patients. Recent scientific advances have provided an increased understanding of pathogenic mechanisms underlying FTD and are driving the development of potential disease-modifying therapies. The Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) and The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) seek to accelerate this progress by supporting innovative small molecule and biologic (antibodies, oligonucleotides, peptides, gene therapy etc.) drug development programs for FTD through this request for proposals (RFP).
The RFP supports:
  • Lead optimization of novel disease-modifying compounds, including medicinal chemistry refinement and in vitro ADME.
  • In vivo testing of novel lead compounds, biologics, vaccines, or repurposed drug candidates in relevant animal models for pharmacokinetics, dose-range finding, target engagement, in vivo efficacy, and/or preliminary rodent tolerability studies.
Current target areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Inflammation
  • Proteostasis
  • Autophagy
  • Epigenetics
  • Genetic Causes of Disease (C9ORF72, MAPT, GRN, etc.)
  • Misfolded proteins (TDP-43, tau, FUS etc.)
  • Mitochondria & Metabolic Function
  • Neuroprotection
  • Synaptic Activity & Neurotransmitters
  • RNA metabolism and splicing
  • Stress granule formation and liquid-liquid phase separation

Estimated Size of Grant:

$100,000 - $150,000 based on stage and scope of research.

Term of Contract:

Average Duration: One year with potential for follow-on funding.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Funding is open to researchers and clinicians in the U.S. and worldwide working in:
- Academic medical centers and universities or nonprofits. Industry partnerships are encouraged.
- Biotechnology companies that demonstrate a clear need for nonprofit funding. Funding is provided through mission-related investments (MRIs) that require return on investment based upon scientific and/or business milestones. Existing companies and new spinouts are both eligible.

This RFP does not support target identification, target validation, assay development, high-throughput and high-content screening. IND-enabling work is supported through ADDF’s PACT RFP.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadlines:
- Letter of Intent: May 20th, 2022
- Invited Full Proposal: July 30th, 2022

Applications must be received by 5:00 pm ET on the deadline date.

Log in or create an account using the ADDF Funding Portal to begin the application process. Please note, new applicants should allow 1-2 business days for registration.

Applications are reviewed in a two-step process:
1. Letters of Intent (LOI): ADDF’s science team will evaluate LOIs to determine whether the proposed project is consistent with the ADDF's mission and funding priorities. Generally, applicants can expect to be notified within 2-3 weeks of their LOI submission.
2. Invited full proposal: Invited full proposals are reviewed by members of the external scientific and business review boards. Generally, applicants can expect to be notified within 3-4 months of their full proposal submission.
