Grants to USA, Canada, and International research faculty based at an academic or nonprofit institution for research studies that address a particular treatment-resistant form of epilepsy with concurrent extensive neurodevelopmental delay. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to advance the development of therapies for CDKL5 Deficiency Disorder (CDD).
This program is seeking grant applications that progress the discovery or development of treatments and/or a cure for CDKL5 Deficiency. The Foundation recognizes that many gaps exist in the basic understanding of CDKL5 and its role in neurologic development. Therefore, basic science projects that address these gaps are welcome as long as they are tethered to the development of a potential therapy.
