The Duke Funding Alert newsletter, published every Monday, provides information on all new and updated grants and fellowships added to the database during the prior week. This listserv is restricted to members of the Duke community.
The SATB2 Gene Foundation is pleased to announce our Research Grant Program. This grant program is open to research investigators affiliated with an academic institution, hospital system, non-profit institution, or other accredited research institutions based in the United States or internationally. Eligible applicants include post-doctoral fellows, clinical fellows, researchers, physicians, or other associated research professionals with faculty appointments or research positions.
To drive research momentum, the SATB2 Gene Foundation Board is highly interested in research proposals that would create pilot data sufficient to support larger scale grant submissions to other funding sources.
Deadline: Nov. 1, 2023
Areas of Interest
The SATB2 Gene Foundation prioritizes the following areas in SAS research, based on high impact needs identified by a recent independent scientific analysis and caregiver input:
- Speech and Language
- Global Development Delays
Additional research priorities include projects on SATB2 function and expression, variations in clinical phenotypes, and symptomatic and/or curative therapeutic interventions. We support projects that gather foundational knowledge about SATB2 function, and we also support projects that aim for tangible and immediate clinical applicability.
In addition, the SATB2 Gene Foundation has previously supported other research resources, such as iPSCs for a variety of precise SATB2 mutations. Please reach out if access to these resources may be helpful to your research.
