Date: April 28, 2016
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced the availability of $2 million in research grants to fund natural history studies in rare diseases. The natural history of rare diseases is often unknown, and this program hopes to bridge the funding gap to ultimately help bring new and important therapies to rare disease patients. The deadline to submit a grant application is October 14, 2016. More information can be found on the FDA website.
