2014 Research Grants

research-grantsThe Isaac Foundation is pleased to announce two research grant opportunities with a call for a $100,000 grant through our general MPS Fund and a call for $50,000 from our MPS II Research Fund.

Last month also saw us renew a research project for $50,000, bringing our total research grants from The Isaac Foundation early 2014 to $200,000!

We continue to be proud of the work that we do in the MPS Community. To date, we are well over 1/2 million dollars granted to research projects throughout the world and we will continue to grow and support innovative research until a cure for MPS is found.

Calls for Applications to these grants will be issued soon.

We are also very pleased to announce that Dr. Barbara Burton and Dr. Paul Harmatz, both world-renowned MPS specialist from the United States, have joined our Medical Advisory panel to review and advise on research applications as they come in. Dr. Burton and Dr. Harmatz join Dr. Julian Raiman and Dr. Joe Clarke to round out our 2014 Medical Advisory Panel.

More details to follow soon. Thanks for you continued support as we seek to find a cure for our kids!
