Project CASK Grant Program – Now accepting applications!

Project CASK, in collaboration with Orphan Disease Center, is seeking proposals to advance research that supports therapeutic development for CASK gene disorders. The project will consider applications that will make a significant impact on the CASK community and the prospects for accelerating therapeutic development in one of two categories:

1) Grants to expand the study of disease mechanisms or to support clinical research (at least 2 awards of $50,000 each for 12 months)

2) Grants for the development of potential therapeutic interventions (at least one award of up to $250,000 for two years)

All applicants must first submit a one-page Letter of Interest (LOI) to be reviewed for consideration of a full application submission, specifying the category ($50,000/1 year or $250,000/2 years).

The deadline for submitting the LOI is February 16, 2024, by 8pm EST.
