The Research Grant from the Barth Syndrome Foundation supports innovative applications that address the basic, translational, and clinical research challenges of Barth syndrome. Applications are open to Barth syndrome researchers worldwide. The grant is intended to be seed grant funding to generate the preliminary data required for successful follow-on funding available from major grant-making institutions such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Applications are open to independent investigators. There are two application types:
- Idea, US $50,000 maximum Total Cost, 1-2 years in duration. Idea applications are well-suited for basic research/discovery science applications and have a lower threshold for the amount of preliminary data required compared to Development applications
- Development, US $100,000 maximum Total Cost, 2-3 years in duration. Development applications have a higher threshold of preliminary data and are ideally suited for proposals with clear implications for therapeutic development
Grant covers up to 10% indirect costs.
Applications close on October 30, 2023.
