Fund rare disease research
The RTW Charitable Foundation has a focus of supporting rare disease research. Drug development research for rare diseases often lacks the funding needed to learn if a treatment is effective and safe. In addition, some conditions are so rare that no profit model exists to bring such treatments to market. The Foundation believes that the lack of profit should not be a deterrent to promising treatments that can impact the lives of many living with rare diseases.
Area of Focus: For 2021, research focusing on cardiovascular, central nervous system, or pediatric rare diseases in need of funding support are welcome to apply.
Types of Grants: Research proposals could support several elements in basic biology, discovery, translational, natural history, and clinical studies.
Grant Application: The application currently consists of three parts, with the fourth for proposals seeking funding for clinical trial research.
