NACC Data Consortium

Grants and Contracts Details


The National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC), located at the University of Washington, is funded through a Cooperative Agreement (U01) with the National Institute on Aging. NACC's first funding cycle was 1999-2004, and the current application reflects the first year of a competing continuation for 2004-2009. As part of the terms and conditions of their individual NIA awards, Alzheimer's Disease Centers (ADCs) are required to submit designated data to NACC to form a center-wide database. These data consist of, but are not limited to, a Minimum Data Set, a new and expanded Uniform Data Set (currently under development), neuropathology data, ancillary survey data, and meta data to describe individual ADC characteristics. These data form the basic level of participation necessary for all NIA-funded ADCs. To partially defray the costs associated with participating in this data-sharing effort and central database, NACC is authorized to provide some funding support to each ADC. This fund,ing is intended to contribute to salary, equipment or supplies associated with the collection, preparation, and submission of data to NACC. The ADC may also participate in NACC-funded collaborative projects with other ADCs and, as a result, gain additional funds for specific projects; such descriptions and requirements will be added to the current scope of work.
