Barth Syndrome - BSF Research Grant Programme open for applications

The Barth Syndrome Foundation, Inc. (BSF) invites proposals for its Research Grant Programme. Deadline for submitting completed applications is October 31, 2017. The deadline for the Letter of Intent, if applicable, is September 7, 2017. Funding is available for basic science and clinical research on the natural history, biochemical basis, and treatment of Barth syndrome. Idea grants are up to $ 50,000 for 1 to 2 years and Development grants are up to $ 100,000 for 2 to 3 years.

The goal of the programme is to advance medical knowledge of the basic mechanism of the disease so as to develop more accurate diagnostic methods and improved specific therapies for children and adults affected by Barth syndrome. All applications for the 2017 cycle will be evaluated competitively against each other in the same cycle. Although BSF will consider any research proposal related to Barth syndrome, it is particularly interested in supporting research in the following areas:

  • The mechanism of neutropenia in Barth syndrome;
  • The gastrointestinal pathophysiology in Barth syndrome; and
  • The search for compounds that may improve mitochondrial performance in Barth syndrome.
