Our grants support novel projects with great potential to produce breakthroughs in development of novel treatment modalities, drugs and diagnostic tools for vitiligo.
VRF supports research projects, which have one of the following goals:
- to experimentally validate the perspective diagnostic methods, tools and treatments in vitiligo,
- to develop technically sound realization of novel diagnostic tools, methods and treatment modalities for vitiligo which are based on firm scientific and experimental ground.
VRF will also support projects with an impact on current management of vitiligo patients.
Teams may be assembled from several institutions and should be comprised of highly experienced investigators capable of providing a solution to significant problem in vitiligo research. Typically ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 for a period of one year, these grants are aimed at covering the direct costs of the research.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
