HCU Network Australia together with HCU Network America are pleased to announce their first Research Grant was awarded in 2018. The HCU Network Australia Grant is made possible by people within our community who raise funds on our behalf. HCU Network Australia thanks the community first and foremost for making these Grants possible. The HCU Network America Grant is through the Hempling Foundation for Homocystinuria Research, established in memory of Judy and Susie Hempling, two young girls from Buffalo, NY whose lives were cut short by HCU in the 1970s.
The HCU Networks extend a warm thanks to our Scientific Advisory Board for generously giving their time and expertise to review the Research Grant Applications and a special thanks is extended to the independent reviewers of these Applications for their valuable insight and expertise in their evaluation of the Grant Applications.
The HCU Networks plan to continue this Grant Program through issuing calls for Expressions of Interest on a periodic basis. The next call is planned first half of 2019.
