Gene Therapy Advancement Award

The ACD is proud to support gene therapy research and as part of our Gene Therapy Consortium, we’ve created the Gene Therapy Advancement (GTA) Award. Each grant will be up to a limit of $10,000 and is proposed to be used towards capacity building, resource/tool creation, or fulfillment of experiment. To apply for the GTA award, each researcher can submit a short proposal where the goals of the proposal and impact of the results will be outlined. Each proposal will be evaluated by the ACD board consisting of patient advocates and scientific researchers.

The Q3 GTA awards are now open and ACD is accepting applications for funding. We encourage researchers to apply for these awards. To learn more, including how to apply for these awards, please visit this page.
