Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,
As we continue our focus on foundation funded research this week, the 15th day of our GLOBAL October 2014 Niemann-Pick Disease Awareness month event, we are highlighting another 2014 research award recipient. The National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF), along with the Canadian Chapter of the NNPDF, are pleased to announce to our NPD communities in the United States and Canada ~ the 2014 recipients of the Peter G. Pentchev & Edward H. Schuchman 2014 Fellowship awards and grants!
Due to the tireless efforts of our US & Canadian NPD family membership over fiscal year 2013, the foundations will be supporting four new research fellowship and scientific grant laboratories associated with Niemann-Pick Disease.
