From New Grants Available

Monday, July 27, 2009

New grants are available from the National Rosacea Society (NRS) to support research on potential causes and other key aspects of rosacea that may lead to improvements in its treatment and potential cure or prevention. Medical researchers can obtain application forms by contacting the National Rosacea Society, 800 South Northwest Highway, Suite 200, Barrington, Illinois 60010, telephone 888/662-5874, fax 847/382-5567, e-mail or by filling out the request form here.

The deadline for submitting applications is November 15, 2009. Grants will be issued following selection by the NRS medical advisory board.

Because the etiology of rosacea is unknown, a high priority in awarding grants will be given to studies relating to such areas as the pathogenesis, progression, mechanism of action, cell biology and potential genetic factors of rosacea. Research in such areas as epidemiology, predisposition, quality of life and relationships with environmental and lifestyle factors may also be funded.

More information on the NRS research grants program may be found in the Research Grants section.
