Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International post-doctoral students, research scientists, and professors at academic institutions or affiliated with the pharmaceutical industry for research related to Myhre syndrome. Funding is intended for novel approaches to treatment, to raise funding, to encourage early-career researchers to pursue Myhre research, and to discover a cure.

The purpose of the MSF is to serve Myhre syndrome families by providing a network of hope and support and to collaborate with scientific and medical communities to encourage and fund promising research and advocate for better treatments and a cure for those with Myhre syndrome. 

Myhre syndrome is a rare genetic condition with approximately 200 documented cases worldwide. Both its symptoms and severity are highly variable and substantial research is needed to understand its complexities. For this reason, the MSF awards grants to applicants who seek to conduct basic, pre-clinical, translational, and clinical research projects that investigate all aspects of Myhre syndrome. 

The MSF is particularly interested in funding research projects that have the potential to accomplish one or more of the following:

  • Identify novel therapies that may significantly improve the quality of life of individuals with Myhre syndrome;
  • Address an important or novel research question related to Myhre syndrome;
  • Investigate an aspect of Myhre syndrome that is less well researched or is a promising new area for research;
  • Promote and encourage Myhre syndrome research in young investigators;
  • Produce preliminary data that would facilitate broader or more substantial funding from agencies, foundations, or corporations in the future;
  • Discover a cure for Myhre syndrome.

There are two funding types:

  • Idea applications are well-suited for basic research/discovery science applications and have a lower threshold for the amount of preliminary data required compared to Development applications.
  • Development applications have a higher threshold of preliminary data and are ideally suited for proposals with clear implications for therapeutic development.
