Special consideration will be given to new investigators.

  1. The support of basic or clinical research for any MPS syndrome
    • Two (2) $60,000 grants
  2. The support of basic or clinical research for MPS II
    • One (1) $50,000 grant
  3. The support of basic or clinical research for MPS III
    • One (1) $90,000 grant

  5. The support of basic or clinical research for MPS VI
    • One (1) $60,000 grant

Each grant is awarded for two years, with half of total funding provided in 2013 and half in 2014.  Syndrome specific research not awarded funding in its specific category will also be considered for funding within the general MPS funding category.
