NIH wants Congress to spend roughly $1 billion per year on Alzheimer’s research.

Reflecting the Nation’s determination to end the scourge of Alzheimer’s, NIH for the first time has prepared this professional judgment budget proposal for FY 2017. This budget proposal estimates the additional funding needed to reach the ultimate research goal of the National Plan—to effectively treat and prevent Alzheimer’s and related dementias by 2025—and will be updated annually. It focuses on funding for investigator-initiated research grants and NIH initiatives that would spur research beyond NIH’s base budget allocated in the previous year.
