  172.801.  Research project funds, duties of board of curators — research projects, priorities and selection by advisory board, procedure — open to public. — 1.  The board of curators shall award funds to investigators for research projects that promote an advancement of knowledge in the area of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.  For this purpose, the board of curators shall request annually an appropriation of not less than two hundred thousand dollars adjusted for inflation.  The board of curators shall also request additional funds for administrative overhead not to exceed ten percent of the annual appropriation of research funds.

  2.  Research priorities shall be determined by the advisory board and may include, at least, issues of cost containment, cause, diagnosis, management and provision of care and services relevant to Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, as well as the impact on care givers.  In determining the priorities, the advisory board shall seek the advice of national experts in research on Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.

  3.  The advisory board shall solicit and select proposals for research projects according to procedures approved by the board of curators.  The selection procedures shall provide for peer review of the background and ability of each investigator, the merits of the work proposed and an evaluation of the potential for each research project to achieve productive results.  The peer review shall be conducted by the advisory board in accordance with such procedures as are utilized by the National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation and shall be further consistent with the procedures required by the Missouri research assistance act as otherwise provided by law.  Such review shall consist of professional evaluation of the proposal by experts on the topic who are not affiliated in any way with the submitting investigator.  Because the proposals submitted for funding are the submitting investigator's private property and could be a scientific or technological innovation in which the submitting investigator has a proprietary interest, the results of this external evaluation and the related discussion by the advisory board shall not be open to the public.  The final awards of the advisory board and all of its other proceedings shall be open to the public.
