About IADRP

Launched in 2010 as a joint collaboration between the National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer’s Association, the International Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias Research Portfolio (IADRP) collates and categorizes the portfolios of major organizations for areas of shared priorities as well as areas of opportunities to inform coordination and collective efforts that seek to advance AD/ADRD research.

Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (AD/ADRD) are recognized as a public health crises worldwide. As public and private funding agencies around the world enhance and expand their support of AD/ADRD research, there is an urgent need to coordinate funding strategies and leverage resources in order to maximize the impact on public health, avoid duplication of effort and reduce inefficiency. Such coordination requires a comprehensive assessment of the current landscape of AD/ADRD research in the US and internationally.
