The NCL Foundation, a German research-oriented patient advocacy group, aims to help find a cure for neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL), commonly known as Batten disease, which is a large lysosomal disease-group affecting humanity worldwide. This research Award of €50,000 is intended to support a postdoctoral fellowship for one year. The Foundation highly encourages junior scientists and clinical researchers worldwide to submit projects that hold promise to help halt, or find a cure for, Batten disease. They also encourage scientists to apply for this Award who work in disease areas outside NCL, but which are relevant to cell and molecular pathways of CLN3 dysfunction.
The deadline for submitting all required documents is October 31, 2016. For extremely detailed information and the downloadable application form (which must be used), please visit: NCL Research Award: Call for Proposals.
