Muscular Dystrophy UK calls for proposal are now open.

The funder is offering funding for PhD studentships and project grants (including shorter, proof of concept projects such as pilot studies) which have relevance to one or more type of muscular dystrophy or a related neuromuscular condition.

They are looking to support research across the breadth of conditions supported by the charity, and welcome applications for rare and ultra-rare conditions as well as the more common ones. Please refer to the list of conditions supported by Muscular Dystrophy UK.

As well as funding scientific and translational projects, Muscular Dystrophy UK are also looking to invest in research that will have a direct, positive impact on people’s quality of life, for example social or psychological research or projects with a focus on exercise or physiotherapy.

Funding is available for research that can demonstrate relevance to Muscular Dystrophy UK’s goals and objectives. You can review the funders Research Strategy for more information.

The deadline for electronic submissions is 5pm on Friday 13th January 2017.
