Deadlines for the FARA Grant Program are Approaching

LOIs for the Keith Michael Andrus (KMA) Cardiac Award, the Kyle Bryant (KB) Translational Research Award, and the Bronya J. Keats (BJK) Research Collaboration Award are due on January 15.

KMA Cardiac Award: Proposals focused on advancing understanding and/or treatment of the cardiac involvement in FA

KB Translational Research Award: Proposals focused on pre-clinical and clinical investigations that will advance treatments for FA, such as the identification of biomarkers, the development of tools and technologies that can be used for therapy development, the pre-clinical development and testing of potential therapeutics, or clinical studies of patient outcome measures.

KMA Cardiac Award:: Proposals focused on FA research that relies on the collaboration among investigators from at least two different Institutions. Special consideration will be given to proposals that bring new scientists to the FA community.

The Award for Innovative Mindset (AIM) application deadline is February 1.

The AIM supports the initial exploration of innovative, high-risk, high-gain, and potentially groundbreaking concepts in FA research. The presentation of preliminary and/or published data is encouraged, but not required. Note that this application does not require an LOI.

LOIs for General Grants, Postdoctoral Fellowships, and Postdoctoral Awards are due on February 15.

All investigators interested in FA-related research are invited to submit an LOI through our submission portal.
