UMD aims to promote research improving diagnosis, prevention, treatment and care for patients and families with an inherited metabolic disease through UMD Catalyst Grants.
Projects that fit within the UMD objectives and within one (or more) of the UMD themes are eligible for funding. Researchers can submit an application for a project or for the start/part of a project and the grant can be used to cover research materials, bench fee or personnel with a maximum amount of € 20.000.
There will be four UMD Catalyst Grant rounds each year and thus there will be a quarterly deadline for submitting applications. The first deadline for submitting an application is the 1st of October 2019. Each proposal will be reviewed by 3 members of the UMD board and decisions will be made within one month after the submission deadline and sent to the applicants with feedback.
