On June 13 we held our June Community Council with Elizabeth Barrows who has extensive experience as a federal funding consultant and in-depth knowledge of the Department of Defense funding opportunities. The Department of Defense has included Epidermolysis Bullosa as a "topic area" for their Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP) which will grant $300M in funding in 2017. We are excited to provide the research community with the tools and knowledge to put forward a successful application. Please note, pre-proposals are due between July 13 and July 19, 2017. We encourage you to watch the webinar and apply.
