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
