GBS|CIDP Foundation International 2021 Discovery Research Grant Opportunities
As part of the GBS|CIDP Foundation International’s mission to provide education and support research, we offer research grants to qualified applicants. Grants are made possible through the benevolence of many sources, including the Helen S. Manheimer Research Fund, contributions from individuals who have been personally touched by GBS or CIDP and by several commercial sources. Through the generosity of these contributors, to whom the Foundation is most grateful, we are able to offer a Research Grant Program. The GBS|CIDP Foundation International has worldwide representation, sharing resources with local support group chapters nationally and internationally.
Foundation interests include GBS, both demyelinating and axonal variants, Miller Fisher syndrome, CIDP, Multifocal Motor Neuropathy, and others. Research interests cover a broad range of subjects including development of methods to more rapidly diagnose these disorders, creation of educational and communication programs to inform patients and families of the Foundation’s availability, identification of mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of family disorders, development of more effective treatments to limit the disease process, prevent complications and reduce long-term adverse sequelae.
This type of grant awards up to $100,000 per year for a period of two years to intermediate/experienced researchers seeking to answer complex research questions about GBS, CIDP, or variants.

DOD PRMRP: The Department of Defense maintains a Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program to support research across the full range of science and medicine, with an underlying goal of enhancing the health, care, and well-being of military Service members, Veterans, retirees, and their family members. Projects related to GBS are eligible to apply for funding through this program thanks to the partnership between the Foundation and key Congressional partners who recognize a relationship between GBS and Service members.
