The NORD Research Grant Program provides seed-money grants to academic scientists for scientific and/or clinical research. The hope is that these studies will ultimately 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 provided through the NORD program are made possible by donations from individuals and organizations to restricted research funds at NORD.
NORD is happy to announce this year’s Requests for Proposals for research grants that will result in research into six different diseases.
- Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia (ACD)
