The NFRP Supports the Future of NF Research with Several New Investigator Awards
Published On: 12/7/2020
The Neurofibromatosis Research Program (NFRP) utilizes the New Investigator Award (NIA) to introduce the next generation of investigators and their ideas to the Neurofibromatosis (NF) research community. This award mechanism aims to support the continued development of promising new independent investigators or established investigators transitioning from other career fields who can bring new techniques or expertise into the field of NF research. The first NFRP NIA was awarded in 1999; since then, 326 NIA applications have been received, of which 73 have been recommended for funding. In fiscal year 2019, seven NIAs were awarded. The research planned by these investigators addresses different NF research topic areas of interest, and all NIA researchers are bringing novel concepts to the NF research community.
