Our research aims:

We fund research which seeks to provide both short and long term benefits for people living with Prader-Willi Syndrome. This includes projects which improve symptom management and health, development or behavioural outcomes for people living with Prader-Willi Syndrome, as well as projects which seek to develop an ideal treatment or therapy for the condition.

We are focused on making a real difference to the lives of people living with Prader-Willi Syndrome.

Projects funded:

Our scientific advisory committee is now considering research proposals. Our short-list includes funding a clinician to complete a PhD in Prader-Willi research, a project which focuses on an effective treatment for constipation management (a common problem in Prader-Willi Syndrome which has flow-on effects to behaviour) and epigenetic projects which seek to find a treatment for this condition.

If you are a researcher with a project which meets the aims of our foundation, please contact info@praderwilli.org.au for an application form. We give priority to Australian based researchers where possible.
