The Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) has established a collaborative clinical research network in conjunction with a Coordinating Center and approximately 20 academic research centers at major universities throughout the United States. The over-arching objective of the LBDA Research Centers of Excellence (RCOE) program is to increase access to LBD clinical care expertise and establish a clinical trials-ready network of nationally-recognized LBD research centers.

The aims of the program are to:

  • Establish a clinical research network and to facilitate clinical trials
  • Increase access to high quality clinical care over the course of LBD
  • Increase access to support for people living with LBD and their caregivers
  • Increase knowledge of LBD among medical and allied (or other) professionals
  • Create infrastructure and resources to advance LBD research

Under this request for proposals, LBDA intends to expand the RCOE program by funding up to five additional academic research centers.
