HD Human Biology Project

Description

The Human Biology Project was launched with the goal of fostering innovative research in collaboration with HD clinics to better understand the biology of Huntington's disease as it occurs in humans. HDSA encourages researchers to consider one of HDSA's Centers of Excellence as a potential collaborator, but applicants may propose to work with any HD clinic around the world. One to two years of funding will be given to support a scientist working collaboratively with an HD clinic anywhere in the world. This is open to researchers from around the world regardless of their position or title. Preference will be given to young postdoctoral and clinical investigators (PhD and/or MDs) who are not yet independent. Innovative ideas from non-scientists will also be accepted and encouraged. Applications from for-profit institutions are also welcome. The letter of intent is due on May 3rd, 2024 and complete applications are due on July 5th, 2024. Biographical sketches and a list of other funding (can be NIH-style) for the applicant, mentor, and other key personnel listed in the budget are required. One to three letters of reference from mentors or clinical collaborators must also be submitted. Please visit the award's website for more information.
