Barth Syndrome Research Grants -- Requests for Proposals

Funding Agency:
Barth Syndrome Foundation

The 2024 grant cycle is now open, and Barth Syndrome Foundation (BSF) and our International Affiliates welcome innovative applications that address the basic, translational, and clinical research challenges of Barth syndrome. Through this program, BSF seeks to provide seed grant funding to young and established investigators in order to generate the preliminary data required for successful follow-on funding available from major grant-making institutions such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Applicants must be independent investigators (e.g. faculty appointment). Pre- and postdoctoral applicants are encouraged to apply to the American Heart Association & BSF Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowship program, which opens in Fall 2023 and accepts applications with a focus on BTHS and/or cardiolipin (due Sept. 6th for predoc, and Sept. 7th for postdoc). For questions, please email our AHA colleagues via apply@heart.org 

Deadline: Oct. 31, 2023
