AISS finances a wide range of research projects on SDS.

Our philosophy is that investing in research on SDS is the only way forward if we want to progress beyond treatment of the symptoms alone, the priority being management of the underlying syndrome with the ultimate prospect of developing a cure.

Below, you can see the list of all the projects we have financed and a complete bibliography of scientific articles on Schwachman-Diamond Syndrome.

The Grant Review Coordinator will tabulate a score for each proposal.

The final rank order without scores will be forwarded to the AISS Board, with a recommendation of “approved for funding if sufficient funds are available”, or “disapproved”.
