Young Investigator Draft

March 9th, 2019
Lincoln Financial Field (Philadelphia, PA)


The Young Investigator Draft is the result of Uplifting Athletes’ ongoing commitment to cultivate resources that accelerate scientific advancements for rare disease treatments and potential cures while facilitating the next generation of rare disease researchers.

Annually, we will provide funding to five young investigators who are pursuing research in five different areas of rare disease: rare cancers, rare autoimmune and immunological disorders, rare blood disorders, rare genetic disorders and rare muscular and neurological disorders.
