Funding the Future

The Hereditary Disease Foundation wishes to celebrate our upcoming 50th birthday by making even more of an impact to develop novel therapeutics and cures. We are putting in place strategies and new grant funding programs to maximize our effectiveness. We have been funding catalytic and paradigm-changing research since our birth – including identifying the Huntington’s disease marker in 1983 and the HD gene in 1993, and supporting gene silencing approaches since 2002. We want to continue to make an impact by funding research that pushes the envelope. 

We will be issuing a statement of our science priorities over the next few months. Until then, funding applications will be delayed accordingly. Stay tuned!!
