AEA Community 2021 Seed Grant Program

December 10, 2020

The AE Alliance is pleased to announce its inauguration of the AEA Community 2021 Seed Grant Program to support research focused on the diagnosis, management, and outcomes of individuals with AE. We will be awarding multiple grants of $10,000 in 2021.

As the name implies, this program is a true community effort. In May 2020 we launched the Research Network. We invited our community to join the Network, to invest in research, in order to change the course of AE. The AEA Community 2021 Seed Grant Program is a direct result of this effort.

This pilot grant is unique in its emphasis on and preference for research with a direct impact on patient care. Through this research program, the AE Alliance will be able to encourage and enable researchers to center the focus of their efforts on the patients affected by AE and their families.
