Science & Medicine
We are a world leading source of support for research into the fundamental understanding of Barth syndrome (BTHS), diagnosis and treatments.
For researchers and scientists carrying out research we have available:
- ‘Seed´ funding to investigators for testing initial hypotheses and
collecting preliminary data leading to successful long-term funding by
National Institutes of Health and other major granting institutions.
Proposals are carefully scrutinized before awards are made.
- International conference, held every two years, bringing together leading scientists
and researchers from across the world. The conference has a series of
events, including meetings, lectures and forums devoted to the exchange
of the latest findings relating to basic research.
- Access to our international Scientific & Medical Advisory Board
(SMAB), which comprises world renown clinicians and scientists who are
leading experts in Barth syndrome. The SMAB is an integral part of our
organization. This group forms the review panel for research grants and
provides scientific and medical advice and guidance to BSF's Board of
Scientific & Medical Publications (includes up-to-date bibliography of articles relevant to Barth syndrome).
