Progeria Research Foundation Seeks Proposals for Research on Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (Progeria)

Deadline: April 27, 2011

The Progeria Research Foundation (PRF) is the only organization in the world dedicated to discovering the cure and effective treatment for Progeria and its aging related disorders through medical research, outreach and education. Progeria is a rare, fatal, "premature aging" disease that affects children, who die of heart disease at an average age of 13 years. Scientific studies have linked the Progeria disease process to the same heart disease that afflicts millions, and the aging that affects us all.

Awards of up to $50,000 per year for up to two years are available from PRF to support investigators for basic science research aimed at developing effective treatments and/or cure for Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome.

For more information, visit the PRF website: http://www.progeriaresearch.org/grant_application.html, or contact 978-535-2594 or info@progeriaresearch.org.
