Requests for Proposals
The NORD Jayne Holtzer Rare Disease Research Grants Program provides seed-money grants to qualified investigators for scientific and/or clinical research. The hope is that these studies ultimately will lead to new diagnostics, treatments, and/or cures for rare diseases. NORD’s program provides grants for the study of diseases for which there are few other sources of funding. Grants are made possible through the generosity of allies in the rare disease community and supporters who have donated into NORD’s research fund.
Since the program’s launch in 1989, NORD grants have led to the development of two FDA-approved treatments and numerous peer-reviewed publications. More than 200 grants have been awarded representing over $9 million in approved funding.
