IQSEC2 Research and Advocacy Foundation Research Grant Program 2023

The IQSEC2 Research and Advocacy Foundation will provide a 1-year grant, with a no cost extension of up to one year granted with approval, to support research related to IQSEC2-related disorder. The foundation will award either one grant of $60,000 or two grants for $30,000.

The Foundation, in collaboration with the Orphan Disease Center, is seeking grant applications that will address both symptoms of the disease (i.e. intractable seizures) and/or mechanistic studies that are oriented towards developing therapies addressing the underlying cause of IQSEC2 mediated intellectual disability, autism and epilepsy. The grant will exclusively be on IQSEC2 mutation mediated disease and not on other disease mutations that may have some overlap.


All individuals holding a faculty-level appointment at an academic institution or a senior position at a non-profit institution or foundation are eligible to respond to this RFA. Researchers with no prior experience with IQSEC2 are encouraged to apply. 

Applications are due Friday, November 3, 2023 by 8pm EST.
