The ultimate goal of the Cystinosis Research Foundation is to find better treatments and a cure for cystinosis. Research and fellowship applications must take into consideration the mission and goals of the foundation in order to be considered.
Funding & Duration
The number of awards and their value will depend on the number of outstanding proposals and the funds available at the time.
Fellowship stipend: The fellow’s stipend should be the usual amount for such a trainee at that institution. The total award cannot exceed USD $75,000 per year (approx. AUD $103,000) including overhead. Awards will generally be for a period of 1-2 years.
The general eligibility criteria requires that applicants align with the goals of the Foundation. With regards to fellowships, first priority will be given to “named” postdoctoral trainees, however, investigators who are already studying cystinosis can apply for a fellowship position with the expectation of attracting a suitable postdoctoral fellow within a year.
Pre-doctoral students, who are already studying cystinosis, will be considered if funding is available.
