Research Grants
Since 2006, the CJD Foundation has awarded 35 grants for prion disease research.  In the history of the program, we have awarded more than a 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.
