Carson Family Telomere Biology Disorder Research Award
The primary goal of the Carson Family Telomere Biology Disorder Research Award from Team Telomere, Inc. is to support research initiatives that address critical gaps in our understanding of Telomere Biology Disorders. This grant seeks to fund interdisciplinary, translational, and/or clinical research efforts that will lead to the development of therapies and strategies that better diagnose, manage, treat, or cure Telomere Biology Disorders.
Investigators are invited to apply for the Carson Family Telomere Biology Disorder Research Award from Team Telomere. A single award of up to $100,000 total costs will be given for a one-year project.
