The NORD Research Grant Program provides seed-money grants to academic scientists for clinical research. The hope is that these studies will ultimately lead to new diagnostics, treatments, and/or cures for rare disorders.

Grants will be awarded to academic researchers to initiate small scientific research studies or clinical trials, the results of which could be used to obtain funding from NIH, FDA or other funding agencies, or to attract a corporate sponsor. NORD?s program provides grants for the study of diseases for which there are few other sources of funding. In all, seven grants are available in 2011 for the study of the following six diseases: Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, Corticobasal degeneration, Diffuse Scleroderma, Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, Tarlov Cysts, Trimethylaminuria.
