The Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK) 2019 Grant Round is now open. Funding is offered for 4 year PhD studentships and project grants up to 3 years (including shorter, proof of concept projects of up to one year) that have relevance to one or more type of muscular dystrophy or a related neuromuscular condition.

Funding is available for research applications that can demonstrate relevance to Muscular Dystrophy UK’s goals and objectives. This includes research that increases understanding of the underlying causes and mechanisms of muscle-wasting conditions, develops and evaluates potential therapeutic approaches, addresses the impact of muscle-wasting conditions on the quality of life of patients and families, or establishes best practice in symptom management. Please see MDUK’s Research Strategy for more information. 

Whilst funding is only available for Principal Applicants who are based in the UK, international collaborations are strongly encouraged.
