The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR), a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting research to advance the understanding and treatment of Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), announces the availability of funds to support innovative PWS research.  FPWR is particularly interested in supporting projects that will lead to new treatments to alleviate the symptoms associated with PWS.  Funding priorities include:

  • Genotype to phenotype: understanding PWS genetics / how loss of PWS-critical region genes leads to the phenotype
  • Neurobiology of hunger / feeding behavior in PWS
  • Neurobiology of cognitive deficits, maladaptive behavior and mental illness in PWS
  • Clinical care research: evaluation of existing drugs and interventions to improve health and quality of life in PWS
  • Therapeutics development for PWS- Genetic therapies; novel pharmaceuticals; drug repurposing for PWS
