We are super excited to announce that Ring14 USA is partnering with American Epilepsy Society (AES) to fund an early career grant in 2019.
We are soliciting projects focused on Ring14 syndrome and other anomalies originating from the 14th chromosome to improve treatments, quality of life, and the molecular understanding of these conditions. We are specifically interested in deciphering any relationship between the onset of epilepsy and anomalies on the 14th chromosome. The call aims to support early stage project(s) that will be carried out over a short period of time (1 year) with a limited resources ($30,000 for postdoctoral research up to a maximum budget of $50,000 for junior investigators). Scientists involved in basic research as well as in the pre-clinical field are allowed to submit an application. Successful application(s) is/are expected to open a path towards new research on 14th chromosome genetic conditions that will strengthen competitive proposals for subsequent large scale funding from other major organizations. As such, preliminary data to apply to this present call are not strictly required. Applicants will apply directly with AES and be subject to their peer-review process.
