COLLABORATIVE STUDIES ON ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE AND OTHER NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES ASSOCIATED WITH AGING: The purpose of this RFA is to facilitate collaborative cross- disciplinary and multi-institutional approaches that will contribute new and vital information about the clinical and pathological course of normal aging and the neurodegenerative diseases associated with aging. This RFA requires the utilization of data and/or samples from at least three currently funded NIA Alzheimer's Disease Centers with the possibility of using additional relevant data outside of the Centers. The project should use the National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC) for expert advice on planning, study design, statistical analysis and data management of the research projects. Applicants can be from the Alzheimer's Disease Centers, the Morris K. Udall Centers, or the research community at large. There must be a plan to share data originating from these studies by archiving them at NACC so that other investigators will be able to conduct additional analyses when appropriate. There must also be a plan for sample utilization beyond that of the initial application. This is a research opportunity for scientists within and outside the Alzheimer's Disease Centers to gain access to unique resources related to Alzheimer's Disease, other neurodegenerative diseases, and normal aging and to support collection of new data and samples. Applicants can also propose to utilize Center data and samples to investigate other age-related neurodegenerative diseases, such as Vascular dementia, Parkinson's dementia, Lewy Body disease, Fronto-Temporal dementia, as well as study psychiatric symptoms associated with dementia, socio behavioral aspects of dementia, and management and care of dementia patients. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is interested in those specific applications which include the Morris K. Udall Centers of Excellence, or other Parkinson's research centers, in the pursuit of those research objectives focused on Parkinson's Disease (PD) or related parkinsonisms. The PD center need not be located with ADCs, but collaboration with those ADCs with existing samples and data sets focused on PD is required. Specific scientific projects of interest include the use of clinico-pathological correlations to study mechanisms of pathogenesis in PD or other parkinsonian conditions, characterization of the pathological features of these conditions, and the collection of patient data on their associated symptoms.
