Blepharospasm research

A major part of the charter of the BEBRF is to support research into causes and cures of blepharospasm. The BEBRF provides seed funding, or partial funding for research projects through an annual call for proposals for research.

The BEBRF is pleased to offer, to qualified researchers, funds of up to $100,000 for one year (potentially renewable) for research into new treatments, pathophysiology, and genetics of benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) and Meige Syndrome (cranial and oromandibular dystonia). Research into photophobia, dry eye, and apraxia of eyelid opening, and their treatment, will also be considered for funding. BEBRF is especially interested in research proposals in two areas: the use of medical marijuana and the use of neuroplasticity training. Research proposals must relate specifically to BEB and Meige. Non-U.S. citizens working at institutions abroad are eligible to apply for a research grant.

Deadline to apply for a research grant this year is August 31, 2018. More information about that can be found via the link on this page.
