Research Grant Program
The goal of the UMDF Research Grant Program is to identify and fund research (spanning basic to translational to clinical) that is best positioned to impact the development of treatments and cures for mitochondrial disease. The UMDF has already invested in excess of $9 million into this program and is the single largest non-governmental funding agency for primary mitochondrial research in the world. 

The 2016 Cycle is now CLOSED. Submitted Letters of Intent are now undergoing peer review. Applicants will be notified of submission status in early January 2016.
