Incubator Grants

Research into mitochondria and genetics only began to take shape during the 1990s, which makes this a very exciting time to be a mitochondrial disease (mito) researcher. Many funding bodies require the researcher to have a significant track record of investigation. The Mito Foundation understands that it can be difficult to establish some areas of study, due to the fact mitochondrial medicine is a relatively new field.

Funds from the Mito Foundation bridge this gap by facilitating preliminary investigation and enabling the researcher to reach a point where they are then eligible to apply to external/independent bodies for funding to complete their research.

The Mito Foundation offers grants to be awarded for up to 12 months to the amount of $25,000.
