Macular Degeneration Research Grants
The goal of the program is to accelerate advances in fundamental and translational research in age-related macular degeneration, to understand the mechanisms underlying the etiology and pathogenesis of macular degeneration and to develop innovative approaches to better diagnose, prevent or delay the progress of the disease. Preference is made for exciting pilot projects that would not, at their present stage, be competitive for large government or industry awards. Typically these awards are made to early stage investigators, or to more established investigators who are proposing particularly innovative research. Additionally, Postdoctoral Fellows may be listed as Co-Principal Investigator.
