The Appendix Cancer / Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Research Foundation (ACPMP) is pleased to once again accept applications for two, 2-year grants, $50,000 per grant, for scientific research studies and/or clinical research studies related to pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) and/or appendix cancer.

The ACPMP Research Grant Program has issued eighteen research grants totaling $850,000 since 2009.  The program is administered by the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) and grant recipients are selected by the independent NORD Medical Advisory Committee.

Grants will be awarded to qualified researchers to initiate small scientific studies and/or clinical research studies, the results of which could be used to obtain funding from NIH, FDA or other funding agencies, or to attract a corporate sponsor.
