This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for basic and translational research on the impact of the microbiome on Alzheimers Disease and Alzheimers Disease Related Dementias (AD/ADRD). While there is growing evidence that the microbiome is an important factor that contributes to overall health and a variety of diseases and disorders, the role of the alimentary canaland other sources of endogenous microbiota in specific AD/ADRDs has not been adequately addressed. This FOA will support mechanistic research focused on a more rigorous in-depth examination of the potential interactions between the microbiome and genetic and non-genetic molecular targets that influence AD/ADRD. It is expected that these studies will address the clinical relevance of the microbiome on disease initiation, progression, or modification, and will lead ultimately to better therapeutic interventions.
