Chan Zuckerberg Initiative announces two patient-partnered Requests for Application (RFA) with rare disease focus

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is inviting applications from collaborative teams bringing together patient-led rare disease organisations and research teams for 4-year research projects aimed at advancing understanding of the fundamental science of rare diseases across two requests for applications (RFAs)

  • The Patient-Partnered Collaborations for Single-Cell Analysis of Rare Inflammatory Pediatric Disease RFA aims to support the application of single-cell biology methods to rare inflammatory pediatric diseases in order to clarify cellular mechanisms of disease, improve understanding of disease heterogeneity, identify biomarkers, and improve diagnosis. Patient organizations are expected to be active collaborators on this research opportunity and full partners in the development of the grant application.

For more information about these RFAs, an informational webinar is being organised on February 16th from 18.00 – 19.00 CET.

To register for the webinar:

The deadline for submitting applications is May 24th.
