REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS: Grant Proposal to Study Moebius Syndrome for New Investigators

The Moebius Syndrome Foundation Grant Program is pleased to provide seed-money grants to qualified investigators for scientific and/or clinical research on Moebius syndrome.  This year, the Moebius Syndrome Foundation is actively seeking applications from new investigators who are passionate about advancing the understanding of Moebius syndrome.

To qualify, the investigator must be a medical, graduate, or post-doctoral student or be within three years of obtaining his or her first faculty appointment.  For medical, graduate, and post-doctoral students, a faculty mentor is required, but this mentor should not have extensive experience studying Moebius syndrome as the aim is to develop an independent research project by the applicant.

The MSF is looking to fund 1 proposal. Applications should include a 5-page study proposal, a budget, and an NIH biosketch for the principal investigator and co-investigators, if any.  For medical, graduate, or post-doctoral students there should also be a letter of recommendation supplied by the faculty mentor.

We review grants on a rolling basis and therefore encourage applicants to submit their proposals as early as possible. The maximum funding request is set at $100k to be awarded over 2 years ($50k/year).

Please send completed applications to: bdwebb@wisc.edu.
