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 stagesView this resource Bookmark this resource
