Foundation for Prader-Willi Research Invites Research Applications

The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research was established in 2003 by a small group of parents who saw the need to foster research that would help their children with Prader-Willi syndrome lead more healthy and fulfilling lives. Today, FPWR addresses the many issues related to PWS, including childhood obesity, developmental delay, psychiatric disorders, and autism spectrum disorders.

To advance this mission, FBWR is inviting LOIs for its Grants Program. Through the program grants of up to $100,000 (with the possibility of a second year of funding) will be awarded in support of research that advances the understanding and treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome. . Funding priorities identified by the foundation include understanding how loss of PWS-critical genes leads to the phenotype; neurobiology of hunger/feeding behavior in PWS; neurobiology of cognitive deficits, maladaptive behavior and mental illness in PWS; clinical care research: evaluation of existing drugs and interventions to improve health and quality of life in PWS; therapeutics development for PWS-genetic therapies; novel pharmaceuticals; and drug repurposing for PWS.

Letters of Intent are due September 16. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by November 22, 2019.

The foundation accepts applications from academic, government, nonprofit, or for-profit research entities. Academic research applicants should have a primary faculty appointment at the level of Instructor or higher.

See the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
