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). Thanks to the efforts of the NFXF advocates, Fragile X, which includes all FMR1-associated conditions and disorders (FXS, FXTAS, FXPOI, Fragile X Premutation), is once again included as an eligible topic area for Fiscal Year 24 (FY24).

Dr. Argue shared programmatic details, deadlines, and tips to support researchers throughout the application process, and answered questions from attendees.
