Eating Disorders Research Grants Program 

The Klarman Family Foundation is delighted to announce that the Anorexia Nervosa Genetics Initiative (ANGI), a global effort to detect genetic variation that contributes to this disease, has collected clinical information and DNA samples from over 13,000 anorexia patients. ANGI genotyping was completed in August 2017 and is currently in the analysis phase. While our next Eating Disorders grants program won’t exclusively focus on genetics, we expect that the ANGI data may be useful to generate hypotheses. In order to capitalize on this work and to level the playing field for our applicants in terms of access to ANGI results and data, we have decided to postpone the release of our 2018 RFA until these are publicly available. We expect these to be available no later than August, 2018.

We expect to release the next RFA for the Eating Disorders Grants Program in the second half of 2018. Please add your name to our mailing list via the link below, to be notified directly when this RFA is released.
