Immune Deficiency Foundation Research Grant Program

The Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) is currently accepting applications for the IDF Research Grant Program, which is a “seed grant” program to support patient oriented research in primary immunodeficiency diseases. The program is open to applicants currently based in the U.S. and consists of one year grants. The grants may be awarded in the range of $25,000 to $50,000 (with the availability of a somewhat higher level of support for a few exceptional proposals). The deadline to apply is January 31 and applicants will receive notification by April 30. Investigators with an interest in pursuing a career in primary immunodeficiency diseases are encouraged to apply.

More information and the downloadable application are available on the IDF’s website.
