The International Rett Syndrome Association is requesting proposals for biomedical, clinical, and therapeutic research on Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting 1 in 10,000 females.
These grants should be hypothesis based proposals, which can be high-risk high reward, to obtain pilot data or a traditional NIH-type proposal. Under most circumstance the grant awards will provide funds up to $50,000 per year, with two renewals possible.
These fellowship awards are intended to support fellows beyond the first year of research fellowship. Predoctoral students are not eligible for this award. Awards will provide funding for one or two years at up to $35,000 per year.
These studies are intended to enable basic research findings to move towards clinical application and treatment. These need not be hypothesis based.
