Ataxia - FARA Awards 2019

Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) invites proposals for its annual Kyle Bryant Translational Research Award and Bronya J. Keats International Research Collaboration Award. Deadline for submission of Letters of Intent for both is May 15, 2019. Funding is up to $ 250,000 per year for one or two years for the Bryant Award and up to $ 200,000 per year for one or two years for the Keats Award.

The Kyle Bryant Translational Research Award honours its namesake for his diligent efforts to aid in the acceleration of preclinical studies to early pilot trials in FA patients. This award is given to proposals focused on pre-clinical and clinical investigations that will advance treatments for Friedreich's Ataxia (FA). 

 

The Bronya J. Keats International Research Collaboration Award honours its namesake for her academic career in understanding the GAA triplet repeat mutation in FA, and her continued role in managing FARA’s grant program. Proposals should focus on FA research that relies on international collaboration among investigators in at least two different countries. Special consideration will be given to proposals that bring new scientists to the FA community. The rationale for the collaboration needs to be convincing and must clearly demonstrate that the research goals could not be achieved by just one of the participating groups and that the synergy among the groups is essential for the success of the project.

 

Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance supports research through funding competitive grants, promoting collaboration among scientists, advocating for public-private partnerships that support drug discovery, drug development and clinical research and hosting open forums for leading scientists to share their insights, ideas and challenges to advancing treatments for FA.
