Apply for Research Grant
The mission of the Cystinosis Research Foundation is to support bench, clinical and translational cystinosis research to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. Global calls for grant applications are made in the spring and autumn of each year.
The Cystinosis Research Foundation works closely with the CRF Scientific Review Board (SRB) comprised of leading experts in the field of cystinosis who determine the scientific validity and merit of the grant proposals based on the NIH scale of standards. The SRB advises the Cystinosis Research Foundation on the scientific merit of each proposal.
The 2020 Spring Call for Grant Proposals and Fellowship Applications Has Closed.
Thank you to the researchers and scientists who applied for cystinosis grant funding during the spring call for proposals. The 2020 Fall Call for Grant Proposals and Fellowship Applications are to be announced on September 1. The number of awards and their value will depend on the number of outstanding proposals and the funds available at the time.
UPDATE FOR APPLICANTS: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will not require submission of 9 hard copies of the application. All applications should be submitted electronically only. Please contact Nancy Stack if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org
