One $47,189 pilot grant available. RASopathies are a group of genetic conditions caused by mutations in genes on the Ras-MAPK pathway. These conditions, including Noonan syndrome/Noonan-related conditions (NS), cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome (CFC), Costello syndrome (CS), and Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) share many clinical features, such as developmental delay, gastrointestinal difficulties, skeletal abnormalities, hematologic abnormalities, and growth delay.
This grant should be directed toward the development of a treatment or cure for the RASopathies, and must include NS, CFC, and CS. This grant is made possible by Team RASopathies Network Riders and the RASopathies Network.
