Ionis Janice Wiesman Young Investigator Grant Program

The objective of the Janice Wiesman Young Investigator Grant Program is to provide funding to researchers at eligible academic or nonprofit institutions who submit innovative research proposals in the areas of translational, clinical, or applied research. The research should advance the understanding of ATTR amyloidosis, facilitate early diagnosis of patients with ATTR amyloidosis, and/or enhance management of patients with a diagnosis of ATTR amyloidosis. Specifically, this program will support two young investigators, such as current fellows, residents, or junior faculty, annually to promote quality research related to ATTR amyloidosis and to support the development of future researchers and clinicians.
