GrantPrader-Willi syndromePWS

The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR) is dedicated to supporting research to advance the understanding and treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). We invite applications for funding on an annual or semiannual basis, in response to a Request for Applications.

FPWR accepts applications in all areas of research relevant to PWS, but we are particularly interested in supporting projects that will lead to new interventions to alleviate the symptoms associated with PWS. FPWR accepts applications from academic, government, non-profit or for-profit research entities. Academic research applicants should have a primary faculty appointment at the level of Instructor or higher. This grant program will be useful for junior faculty in the early stages of their careers, established investigators in other areas of research who wish to enter the field of PWS research, or investigators in the PWS field who are seeking funding to support pilot studies in a new area of PWS research. FPWR seeks to support innovative, high-risk/high reward research in its early stages

Angelman SyndromeGrant

The ASF Scientific Advisory Committee identified the following areas of unmet need in AS research. Priority will be given to the following topics:

Projects studying or correcting the heterozygous effect of non-UBE3A genes in deletion.
Projects studying the potential results of increasing UBE3A after therapies or for some subtypes of AS.
Projects studying delivery of therapies and potential for improvement.
Symptomatic therapies that impact the daily life of people with Angelman syndrome and their families.
Proposals that do not address these topics are still welcome and will be given full consideration.
