Aging Focus Pilot Program (2024-2025)
Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) Pilot Program (2024-2025)


PURPOSE: Our two Pilot Cores invite applications for pilot studies using technology and artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize care management and health outcomes for older Americans, including those with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD) living in their homes independently, and those receiving clinical care or skilled home and community-based services.

The goals of this pilot program are to:

1) Solicit, select, and manage pilot studies that develop or test technology and AI to detect risk, predict needs, address disparities, improve access to care, and support decision making for chronic illness management and safe aging in place for older adults with or without ADRD and their caregivers.

2) Foster collaborations among affiliated Penn investigators and a network of scientists and clinicians in peer institutions, research centers, industry partners and home and community-based services.

ELIGIBILITY: We invite applicants from academia, industry, and clinical practice based in the United States. Applicants from under-represented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply for funding.
