Research Grants for a Better Tomorrow

The Connective Tissue Coalition awards Research Initiative Grants of up to $15,000 to qualified applicants.

This program aims to:

  • Foster new and expanded research in the field of connective tissue diseases.

  • Encourage early-career researchers to pursue research on connective tissue disorders and related conditions.

  • Provide seed funding with the potential to secure larger grants in the future, with a focus on genetic and epigenetic studies.


The CTC's research grant program is critical in advancing the field of EDS, LDS, and Marfan Syndrome research and related disorders. We provide funding to promising researchers who are dedicated to finding breakthroughs for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Loeys-Dietz Syndrome, Marfan syndrome, or commonly related disorders. 


Together, we can significantly impact and improve the lives of those living with connective tissue conditions.
