2019 MDBR Pilot Grant Program Now Open

The Snyder-Robinson Foundation is thrilled to announce that the 2019 Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) Pilot Grant program is open and accepting Letters of Interest (LOIs) for a $69,318 SRS grant.  “Research focus areas include new studies into understanding pathophysiology or mechanisms by which SRS causes disease, as well as corresponding treatment options.

There is particular interest in the following areas: creating a non-radioactive assay for SMS; molecular and behavioral phenotype analysis of SRS mouse models available through Jackson Laboratories; further development and testing of AAV9 to deliver a normal copy of SMS to cells of patients; biomarker or “omic” analysis.  We strongly encourage the use of our existing platform for collaboration of data as well as fellow research scientists as it relates to SRS.  These funds have been made available by Team SRS.”
