Grant Program

With The Rory Belle Foundation Advance the Cure Grant Program, we hope to accelerate research and ultimately therapeutic treatments. This program is designed to target early investigators that can lead to subsequent grants from government, industry, other non-profits or other funding sources, including The Rory Belle Foundation.

We are interested funding research that advances the understanding of the cellular, molecular, genetic, and systems-level mechanisms of NARS1 disease. Our priority would be to initially focus creating a reproducible biomarker for testing the future development of treatment options.
