The CHARGE Syndrome Foundation is dedicated to promoting high-quality clinical and scientific research on the cause and treatment of CHARGE syndrome, a genetic, extremely complex syndrome involving extensive medical and physical difficulties that differ from child to child.
To that end, the foundation is welcoming applications for its research grants program. Two types of grants will be awarded through the program:
Basic Science Research — Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of new biomedical research into the etiology, genetic, and molecular mechanisms and treatment of CHARGE syndrome; or for new research on the medical diagnosis and treatment of CHARGE syndrome. Both established and new investigators are encouraged to apply.
Clinical Research Grant Program — Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of clinical research on the treatment, intervention, prevention, and support of individuals with medical, health, and behavioral issues, and their families. Both established and new investigators are encouraged to apply.
Preference will be given to projects that include investigators who are new to CHARGE research and to projects with clear potential to lead to future funding from other agencies.
