NAHRS Research Grant Program Minimize

Research grant awards for scientific investigations on hair disorders.

Since 2003, NAHRS has awarded, on a competitive basis, small grants as “seed” money to investigators studying hair biology, hair growth and hair disorders.

  • One goal of these awards is to provide funds to allow the investigator to generate preliminary results necessary for subsequent funding from organizations such as the NIH.
  • Another goal is to support unique valuable resources used by investigators studying hair biology and disorders.

Research Grants Funded by the NAHRS: Minimize

The NAHRS members share a vision to fund much needed research in hair biology and hair disorders. Our goal is to establish a secure financial base to continue and increase the level of funding for scientific research awards.

Towards this goal, we have initiated a grant program for research in the areas of:

  • Basic hair biology, immunology, morphology, development and differentiation of hair follicles
  • Mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of hair disorders
  • Clinical and basic science research on rare hair disorders, such as cicatricial alopecia
  • Clinical applications for treating patients with hair disorders

NAHRS Current Ongoing Projects: Minimize

Current Ongoing Projects:

Additional goals of the NAHRS include sponsorship and awareness of work needed in areas such as:

  • Cicatricial (Scarring) Alopecia
  • Pathology substudy: To determine what histological features are useful to catalogue in cases of potential cicatricial alopecia
  • Lexicon substudy: To determine a consensus clinical description of each of the primary cicatricial alopecias to facilitate research
  • Collaborative clinical database on patients with cicatricial alopecia to help identify external, genetic and infectious pathoetiologic factors
  • Collaborative therapeutic trials in cicatricial alopecia
  • Collaborative work with our international colleagues on these disorders
  • Funding of a NAHRS subfund for cicatricial alopecia and support of basic and clinical research in this field
