Applying for a Grant
The Canadian Chapter of the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (CCNNPDF) is a sister chapter to the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF) (U.S.) and receives administrative support from the NNPDF.
Money raised through the CCNNPDF is invested in Niemann-Pick Disease research through the NNPDF's research program with guidance from the NNPDF's Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), Board of Directors, and Research Committee. This partnership helps eliminate redundancy and maximizes the impact of research dollars. (Tammy Vaughan, chair of the CCNNPDF, serves as secretary of the NNPDF, and is on the NNPDF's Research Committee.)
In 2014, the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation Board has revised its research funding strategy and has produced a new strategic plan for research, which is still in affect.
As a result, we are pleased to announce that the NNPDF will fund the Peter Pentchev Research Fellowships in 2015 for:
- Predoctoral students with a lab selected and an approved thesis
- M.D., Ph.D and D.V.M postdoctoral researchers
- Early career investigators
The call for Edward H. Schuchman Fellowship applications is not available for 2015.
