2012 Funding Opportunities

The PMP Research Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of two, 2-year grants, $50,000 each, to fund research related to pseudomyxoma peritonei.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the PMP Research Foundation has made these funds available through the PMPRF Research Grant Program. You can find a list of previous PMPRF Research Grant Program recipients here.

To date, PMPRF has awarded $450,000 in funds dedicated to PMP research.

The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) will once again independently administer the grants on behalf of the PMP Research Foundation. The grant application can be found here. Grant applications are due May 4, 2012.
