    Understanding the Role of Bilingualism in Cognitive Reserve/Resilience in Aging and AD/ADRD (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
    Department of Health and Human Services – National Institutes of Health

    The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support research studying the role of bilingualism as it relates to cognitive reserve/resilience in healthy aging and in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Alzheimer’s disease-related dementias (ADRD). This FOA aims to address the need for more prospective, hypothesis-driven research to build a theoretical framework and to clearly identify the extent to which acquiring a second language impacts human brain function. Multimodal and multidisciplinary studies are highly encouraged to improve our understanding of the complex interactions between neural, environmental, and sociocultural factors and the role of bilingualism in healthy aging and in AD/ADRD.
