Meet the Scientists

Research in FTD is exploding and advancing our understanding of the disease. Each year AFTD provides research funds to basic scientists and clinicians who have submitted innovative projects for our Pilot Grant and Drug Discovery Grant competitions. AFTD also awards a 2 year postdoctoral fellowship to the most promising PhD applicant that will allow them to train in a leading FTD lab. Our research dollars are helping build FTD research and creating a legacy of dedicated scientists. We thought you might like to meet them.
