Dr. Kathryn Argue Shares Information and Tips for Applying for DOD’s PRMRP Funding
The NFXF hosted a webinar featuring Dr. Kathryn Argue, Deputy Program Manager of the Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program. Dr. Argue reviewed the details of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program, specifically the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP). Fragile X is an eligible topic within the PRMRP, as has been for over a decade thanks to the tireless efforts of NFXF Advocates.
Dr. Argue shared programmatic details, deadlines, and tips to support researchers throughout the application process. Dr. Argue finished the webinar by answering questions from attendees.
A few top tips from Dr. Argue include:
- Align your proposal with the program-specific goals.
- Fragile X includes all FMR1-associated conditions and disorders (FXS, FXTAS, FXPOI, Fragile X Premutation).
- While not new, hereditary ataxia is also listed as an eligible condition within the PRMRP, which may be a good option for FXTAS projects. Learn more.
