Prof. Anand Bachhawat has received funding of USD82,500 (approx Rs. 50
lakhs) from the Cystinosis Research Foundation for a project entitled
"Genetic and biochemical investigations on the cystinosin transporter
using a novel genetic screen".
The CRF is a private foundation that makes a periodic call for proposals
(internationally). The proposals are reviewed by an international
scientific board, so it is quite a competitive grant.
The project is scheduled to begin on 1st Sept 2014 to 1st Sept 2016.
