National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC) - Year 15 Scope

Grants and Contracts Details


The National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center (NACC), located at the University of Washington, has been funded through a Cooperative Agreement (U01 AG016976) with the National Institute on Aging since 1999. NACC collects and stores research data from Alzheimer's Disease Centers (ADCs) as mandated by NIA. The terms and conditions of NIA awards to the individual ADCs specify that they are required to submit designated limited research data to NACC for inclusion in the database. These data consist of, but are not limited to, a Minimum Data Set, a new and expanded Uniform Data Set, neuropathologic data, ancillary survey data, and meta data describing individual ADC characteristics (no subject names, addresses, etc. are included). These data form the basic level of participation required of all NIA-funded ADCs. To partially defray costs associated with participation in this data-sharing effort (e.g., salary, equipment or supplies required for the collection, preparation and submission of data), NACC is authorized to provide partial funding support to each ADC. This current application reflects Year 8 of the ongoing agreement and the third year of the 2004-2009 budget cycle. The ADCs may also elect to participate in NACC-funded collaborative projects with other ADCs and, as a result, may gain additional funds for specific projects; such descriptions and requirements will be added to the current scope of work.
