Areas of Research Being Advanced by FARA Grants

We believe that investing in FA research will lead to the discovery and advancement of meaningful treatments and a cure for FA. In the past 3-4 years the FARA research grant program provided over 20 million dollars to advance FA research.

The ultimate goal of the FARA grant program is to further therapeutic discovery and development by funding projects related to basic, translational and clinical research. The program is designed to fund established and new investigators in the FA field, both in academic and industry settings and promote collaborations among scientists. In 2019, 15 new grants were funded, spanning nearly all areas of research, and 10 grants approved in previous years received continued funding. Five of the new grants were awarded to investigators who had not previously received FARA funding, including 2 junior investigators. Currently, researchers in 7 countries are receiving funding from the FARA research grant program.

In 2020, FARA anticipates research funding of at least 8 million dollars as we initiate new research programs that will fill gaps in our understanding of FA, promote drug discovery, bring new research resources to the community, grow our Collaborative Clinical Research Network in FA (CCRN), fund new biomarker consortia and clinical research infrastructure to facilitate clinical trials.
