FARA is issuing a request for proposal (RFP) to support clinical drug development programs in Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) by promoting the discovery of technologies to measure frataxin or surrogates of frataxin in inaccessible and disease relevant tissues.
This RFP supports the discovery and validation of non-invasive and quantitative methodologies to measure the following in FRDA affected tissues (brain, spinal cord or heart):
- Frataxin protein levels
- Biochemical activities dependent on/downstream of frataxin function that can be surrogates of frataxin in inaccessible tissues.
