Research

Grants and fellowships from the National MPS Society are provided to qualified medical researchers for the purpose of promoting medical research in the fields of MPS and related diseases. In February of each year the Society announces the grants offered, and funding begins July 1. Occasionally a second grant offering is made later in the year.

All applications are reviewed and ranked by members of the National MPS Society Scientific Advisory Board. The final decision of award recipients is determined by the Board of Directors of the National MPS Society.

Funding for the grants comes from the annual National MPS Society 5k walk/runs in addition to donations and fundraisers. The Society has awarded $4.1 million in grant funding since 2001.

Notice of the current year grant offerings and application will appear on the website. To receive the current application by e-mail, please send your name and e-mail address to barbara@mpssociety.org .

The MPS II mouse model is now available to researchers worldwide.
