Request for Applications ~ 2014 NNPDF Research Fellowships
Dear Families and Friends,
In support of World Rare Disease Day on Friday, February 28th, 2014, the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF) is pleased to announce that, due to the diligent efforts of our family membership and their fund raising successes, the NNPDF will again be funding additional research into NPD.
Our current level of funding enables us to fund research fellowships to improve the understanding of the biology and pathogenesis of Niemann-Pick Disease Type C (Peter G. Pentchev Fellowship) and Acid Sphingomyelinase Deficiency (ASMD; i.e. Types A and B Niemann-Pick Disease, Edward H. Schuchman Fellowship).
Thanks to the hard work of our member families raising money in their communities, and the generosity of many individual and corporate donors, the NNPDF has directed over $5.2 million to Niemann-Pick Disease research since 1992.
