The NORD Research Grant Program provides seed-money grants to qualified investigators for scientific and/or clinical research. The hope is that these studies ultimately will lead to new diagnostics, treatments, and/or cures for rare diseases. NORD’s program provides grants for the study of diseases for which there are few other sources of funding. Grants are made possible through the generosity of allies in the rare disease community and supporters who have donated into NORD’s research fund.
Over the past thirty years, NORD grants have led to the development of two FDA-approved treatments and numerous peer-reviewed publications. More than 150 grants have been awarded representing over $8 million in approved funding since the program’s launch in 1989.
NORD’s Rare Disease Research Grant Program is accepting proposals for the study of the following eight rare diseases. All U.S. and international researchers interested in studying one or more of these diseases are encouraged to apply by Tuesday, June 18, 2019.
NORD’s member organizations are invited to share information on this page about their research funding opportunities. Researchers who have questions about programs listed below should contact the organization sponsoring the RFP.
