Research Grants
To date, the CJD Foundation has awarded 60 grants for prion disease research. In the history of the program, we have awarded nearly 3 million dollars in research grants. The CJD Foundation Research Grant Program offers families affected by prion disease a way to make a measurable impact on the field, in memory of their loved ones.
