Since 2002, the Barth Syndrome Foundation, Inc. and its affiliates have been awarding research grants. The Barth Syndrome Foundation of Canada have participated in their Research Grant program since 2006, and have contributed towards 17 individual grants for a total of over $400,000 US (see here for details). Together with BSF and the other affiliates (UK, France and Italy), 115 research grants have been awarded to 68 principle investigators worldwide, for a total of US $6.4 million.
The 2024 grant cycle is now open, and the Barth Syndrome Foundation (BSF) and its international affiliates welcome innovative applications that address the basic, translational, and clinical research challenges of Barth syndrome. BSF seeks to provide seed grant funding to young and established investigators in order to generate the preliminary data required for successful follow-on funding available from major grant-making institutions.
