Research is the key to improving the lives of individuals with Angelman syndrome and to finding a cure. The Angelman Syndrome Foundation (ASF) twice yearly announces the availability of research funds.
A targeted call for proposals aimed at studying a specific issue related to Angelman syndrome and a second general call for proposals are issued during the fiscal year. All areas of biomedical and behavioral research involving AS are considered during the second general call for proposals, and the ASF is flexible regarding both the number of awards made and the amount of funding for each.
The Angelman Syndrome Foundation has a long history of funding new and innovative research testing the pathogenesis and therapeutics of Angelman syndrome. Since 1996 the ASF is proud to have funded over $4.6 million in Angelman syndrome research, supporting 66 projects world wide.
