Rare As One Network (Cycle 2) RFA
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is opening the second cycle of Rare As One Network to lift up the work that patient communities are doing to accelerate research and drive progress against the 7,000 rare diseases which affect 400 million people worldwide.
Through the Rare As One Network (Cycle 2) Request for Applications (RFA), CZI is inviting patient-led, U.S.-based nonprofit 501(c)(3), rare disease advocacy organizations to apply for a three-year grant opportunity to support the development and/or expansion of a patient-led collaborative research network in their disease area. Selected grantees will be awarded up to $600,000 total costs over a period of three years. Throughout the grant period, CZI will provide grantee organizations with capacity building support, including funding, training, community learning opportunities, and mentorship.
This grant opportunity will provide support to 20 patient-led organizations to build a network of researchers, clinicians, and patients working together to align on the state of the science, identify open research questions, and develop shared research priorities - placing emphasis on addressing diagnosis-related research challenges, and directing attention to the diversity of needs of the full patient community.
