The mission of the Cystinosis Research Foundation is to support bench, clinical and translational cystinosis research to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. Global calls for grant applications are made in the spring and autumn of each year.
The Cystinosis Research Foundation works closely with the CRF Scientific Review Board (SRB) comprised of leading experts in the field of cystinosis who determine the scientific validity and merit of the grant proposals based on the NIH scale of standards. The SRB advises the Cystinosis Research Foundation on the scientific merit of each proposal.
The ultimate goal of the Cystinosis Research Foundation is to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. Global calls for grant applications are made twice each year, in the spring and the fall. To be considered, research and fellowship applications must take into consideration the mission and goals of the foundation. The research and fellowship grants are awarded for 1-2 years.
Currently, the Cystinosis Research Foundation has $2.5 Million available for research and fellowship grants. The number of awards and their value will depend on the number of outstanding proposals and the funds available at the time.
