- Support the NFXF
In addition to supporting research since 1984 through our international conference series, our Rosen Research Funding of Summer Student Fellowships, our Conquer Fragile X Young Investigator events and our public policy efforts in Washington, DC, (advocating on behalf of Federal investments in Fragile X research at the NIH, CDC and the Dept. of Defense) the NFXF has been providing direct grants to researchers since 2003. All funding is approved by our Scientific & Clinical Advisory Committee. Many NFXF grants have been used as seed money to collect preliminary data needed for applications to government funding sources. Most of the research that the NFXF has funded has resulted in publication by peer-reviewed journals – an important standard and objective for all researchers.
Following are descriptions of our previously funded research. Whenever available, links to publications resulting from NFXF-funded research are noted.
