CRF is pleased to announce the 2024 Spring Call for Cystinosis Research Proposals and Postdoctoral Research Fellowships.

The mission of the Cystinosis Research Foundation is to support bench, clinical and translational cystinosis research to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. Global calls for grant applications are made in the spring and autumn of each year.

The Cystinosis Research Foundation works closely with the CRF Scientific Review Board (SRB) comprised of leading experts in the field of cystinosis who determine the scientific validity and merit of the grant proposals based on the NIH scale of standards. The SRB advises the Cystinosis Research Foundation on the scientific merit of each proposal.

The ultimate goal of the Cystinosis Research Foundation is to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. Global calls for grant applications are made twice each year, in the spring and the fall. To be considered, research and fellowship applications must take into consideration the mission and goals of the foundation. The research and fellowship grants are awarded for 1 to 2 years.

Research Grant Proposals: The Cystinosis Research Foundation is prepared to fund proposals to improve the immediate care of children and adults with cystinosis and to develop a new understanding and treatment of cystinosis to help these patients in the future.

Postdoctoral Fellowship Grant Applications: The Cystinosis Research Foundation created a postdoctoral research fellowship program to attract qualified, promising investigators to establish careers in cystinosis research.
