Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is looking for a new colleague to join the Research Management team to help us advance our mission to end Alzheimer’s disease.
Cure Alzheimer’s Fund
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to funding research with the highest probability of preventing, slowing or reversing Alzheimer’s disease. The vision for Cure Alzheimer’s Fund was set by our founders. Frustrated with the slow pace of research about the disease, they applied their experience in venture capital and corporate startups to build an organization specifically designed to accelerate research, make bold bets, and eradicate the disease. The organization’s unwavering focus on finding a cure is made possible by our Board of Directors and Trustees who finance our overhead expenses so that 100% of all donations go to support our research. Learn more about us at https://curealz.org/.
Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Research Management Team
The Research Management team ensures that our portfolio of funded projects meets our mission goals, that our external scientific leadership has the right information to make the best possible decisions, and, alongside our internal colleagues in the Marketing and Development teams, that our generous donor community and the public is kept well informed of what we are supporting and why it matters.
The Director, Grants Management will report directly to the EVP of Research Management. They will be responsible for managing and communicating all aspects of the research funding process: identifying research and researchers with strong potential for transformative ideas, guiding them through our letter of intent and application submission process, matching invited proposals with expert scientific reviewers, and tracking research progress and impact post-award.
