The KBG Foundation is actively seeking to connect with researchers who are currently or are interested in studying KBG Syndrome, mutations in the ANKRD11 gene, the genesis of the mutation and any potential treatments.

Our Seed Fund Grant Program is intended to expedite research projects by supporting investigative research into KBG Syndrome and ANKRD11 or otherwise enabling projects exploring KBG Syndrome and potential treatments to move forward.

For the fiscal years 2022 and 2023, the Foundation will award up to three grants of up to $10,000 each year. Application is open to certified researchers with demonstrated interest in and capability to advance the understanding and treatment of KBG Syndrome.

Awards will be issued with 50% of the funds up front with the remainder issued after six months or the completion of the project, whichever comes first.

Please note: The KBG Foundation will expend $10,000 total per grant. Due to currency exchange rates or financial institution fees, the amount the researcher receives may be less than the full amount.
