Our Research Grants
The goal of our lipedema research grants and program is to support science that comprehensively studies the microenvironment in which lipedema forms and persists. Better understanding the status of fat tissue residents and how they interact with one another will shed light on what causes and drives lipedema.

We accept grant applications from around the world and have funded teams in or from US, UK, German, French, Switzerland, Belgium, and Australia. We have reviewed applications from those countries as well as Israel, China, Poland, South Africa, India, and Denmark.
Alongside our basic research program, we also support patient-centered research that involves identification of genetic drivers of disease, development of biomarkers and diagnostic tools, as well as efforts to capture and track the impact of lipedema on affected individuals.
