Background Information

Since its formation in 2007, FPN has worked tirelessly to advance peripheral neuropathy research to improve diagnosis, treatment, and management of this debilitating condition. In the first year for PN eligibility, the PRMRP received more than 1,000 applications for all eligible conditions. Forty-one focused on PN. Eight of those 41 projects were successful and resulted in more than $8 million in funding. In 2022, three of 28 applications were awarded funding totaling more than $4.6 million for PN grants. In 2023, three applications were awarded funding, totaling more than $3.5 million for PN grants.
