FARA-funded research — Current Strategic Initiatives

FARA awarded a total amount of $6.1 million in research funding in 2018 — an 5.2% increase from last year. This reflects an increase in dollars donated and raised by the countless efforts of our FA and broader communities. Increased fundraising made it possible for FARA to award new grants across several areas of strategic importance (see graph below). We funded 15 new grants under the following strategic initiatives: Drug Discovery (4), Gene and Stem Cell Therapy (1), Mechanisms or Pathway of Disease (3), Cell and Animal Models (3), and Outcome Measures and Biomarkers (4). Additionally, continuation funds were provided for 23 projects spanning nearly all of these strategic areas. These efforts will help FA research move forward by deepening our understanding of disease progression and by engaging innovative approaches to therapy.
