NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Basic and Clinical Research on RETT Syndrome and MECP2

Funding Contact(s): Robert Finkelstein, Ph.D.
Funding Categories: Neurogenetics

Brief Description:

Inviting research grant applications aimed at understanding or treating Rett Syndrome (RTT). The recent demonstration that mutations in the MeCP2 gene cause most cases of RTT has created new opportunities for both basic and clinical research. Included within the scope of this PA are developmental, molecular genetic, and pathophysiological research, therapy development projects and clinical studies. Studies of the role of MeCP2 in basic biological processes or in the etiology of other neurological or neurobehavioral disorders are also appropriate.
