The purpose of this Program Announcement with set-aside funds (PAS) is to
invite applications to study the biological basis of vascular cognitive
impairment (VCI). VCI causes a burden of illness similar to that caused by
Alzheimers disease (AD), but has been far less well-studied. Recently,
however, some important strides have been made in understanding the etiology
of VCI. These include the discovery of a monogenic form of vascular
dementia, CADASIL, and identification of the causative gene as Notch 3. In
addition, MRI and other pathological data have provided a clearer delineation
of the various clinical subtypes of VCI, and awareness of the synergistic
interaction between vascular and classical Alzheimers pathologies in
producing cognitive impairment. The goal of this PAS is to build on these
first critical achievements to obtain a better understanding of the cellular
and molecular mechanisms causing vascular, neural, and glial dysfunction in
human VCI and animal models of VCI.
