Grant Program

*WE ARE ACTIVELY MAKING GRANTS*

Help us discover more about SLC6A1 so we can help those who are diagnosed with it.

The SLC6A1 Connect research grant program will be used to fund gene therapy research that will help us to learn more about SLC6A1 and how gene therapy can be used to help those with an SLC6A1 mutation.

SLC6A1 Connect does not pay an overhead rate more than 3% on any grant.
