Mito Foundation Research Fellowships support early career researchers to develop a track record in mitochondrial disease (mito) research.
Mito Foundation Research Fellowships are charitable grants of up to $100,000 per year for two years, offered to support a researcher’s salary during their work on mitochondrial disorders.
Researchers should be available to make periodic contact with Mito Foundation staff and be able to participate in fundraising and educational events as requested by the Mito Foundation.
