Lewy Body Dementia Association Mentorship Program Award

September 16, 2021 — The goal of this program is to promote the continued development of newly trained clinician-researchers, or experienced clinician-researchers new to LBD, into world-class LBD investigators. This might include individuals with fellowship training in movement disorders, behavioral neurology, geriatric psychiatry, or geriatric medicine. The initiative focuses on the mentorship of young or experienced investigators committed to clinical research in the Lewy body dementia arena by seasoned, established LBD investigators. LBDA will award up to 4 awards of $4,000 (including up to a maximum of 10% indirect costs) for the mentee’s proposed project and/or mentee conference/travel costs. Mentors will receive a $2,000 honorarium.
