The Alzheimer Society Research Program is a collaborative initiative of the provincial Alzheimer Societies, the Alzheimer Society of Canada, partners, and donors who support research directed at both eliminating dementia and improving the lives of those affected by it.

The ASRP targets two types of research:

  1. Biomedical: Focusing on the science of the brain and the changes that are associated with dementia and identifying therapeutic targets to reverse, stop or cure the disease
  2. Quality of Life (QoL): Exploring issues that impact the lives of people with dementia and their caregivers, including risk factors, behavioural and cognitive changes, physical support, caregiving and health service delivery


The principal investigator (and any co-investigators) on a research grant must be based in, or be formally associated with (but not necessarily receive salary support from) a Canadian university or affiliated institution. A researcher based outside of Canada would be eligible as a co-investigator only if his/her participation in the project occurred entirely in a Canadian university or affiliated institution. These conditions apply also to doctoral and postdoctoral supervisors.
