Fundación Jérôme Lejeune Grant for research into genetic intellectual disabilities 2019

The main target of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation, a non-profit foundation, is research into genetic diseases with intellectual disability.

If you are a researcher investigating on Down syndrome and other intellectual disability from genetic origin appearing in early childhood, the Scientific Advisory Board of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation invites you to submit your research project aiming at deciphering the pathophysiology of the cognitive deficits of patients, especially those (up to 50% of the total amount of the global grant) with Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and linked pathologies as well as knowledge of the chromosome 21.

Call for proposals will be dedicated to both Down syndrome and other rare intellectual disabilities from genetic origin such as Fragile X, cri du chat, Rett, Williams-Beuren, Prader-Willi, Angelman, Smith-Magenis and other syndromes. Autism not linked to above diseases is out of this call for grants.

Two types of research projects may be submitted and will be separately evaluated by the scientific board experts or external reviewers if needed for each call:

• Advanced grants will be dedicated to larger breakthrough projects with preliminary data. The maximum funding will be 80,000.00 € for a maximum of two years (i.e. 40,000.00 € per year for a maximum of two years. Two to four projects could be funded per call.

• Pilot or exploratory grants will be dedicated to initial early stage experiments built on preliminary data, or to ancillary projects to primary larger projects.  The maximum funding will be 40,000.00 € for a maximum of two years (i.e. 20,000.00 € per year for a maximum of two years.
