Together, the Alzheimer's Association and Bill Gates are bringing research one step closer to ending this devastating disease by funding bold, brave science.


Gates is joining the Alzheimer’s Association Part the Cloud global research grant program, led by philanthropist Mikey Hoag, in a shared vision for innovation by making a $10 million award. The Alzheimer's Association, the global leader in Alzheimer's and dementia research, will work through Part the Cloud to raise $20 million. This doubles the total Part the Cloud clinical research investment to $60 million in just one year.

This strategic funding will help propel high-risk, high-reward research aimed at uncovering underlying brain cell changes, timely diagnosis and new treatments for Alzheimer’s and all dementia. Part the Cloud has already awarded $30 million in grants to 39 state-of-the-art research projects.

Innovative philanthropists are taking on the enormous global challenge of changing the trajectory of Alzheimer’s.

Help the Alzheimer's Association + Part the Cloud by contributing toward the goal of raising $20 million. Your donation will help bring the total investment to $60 million.

Help move potential therapies into clinical trials faster

Bill Gates and Part the Cloud have partnered to accelerate research exploring specific areas of neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation, and immune responses that contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s and dementia, including:

  • How brain cells use energy and fuel (mitochondria, bioenergetics and metabolism)
  • How brain cells remove waste and debris to avoid protein clumping (autophagy)
  • How blood supply in the brain is maintained (vascular)
