MDC Annual Neuromuscular ‘Seed Grant’ Competition Launch
MDC is very excited to announce that their Annual Neuromuscular ‘Seed Grant’ Competition has launched and are now accepting applications until Feb 2, 2021 for Translational Science Seed Grants and Clinical Health Management Grants.
During a time when health research funding is challenged due to the COVID-19 pandemic and as many like-minded organizations/agencies have had to cancel their research competitions, MDC are very grateful that they are able to continue the momentum achieved over the last several years and provide critical research funds to help accelerate the understanding of neuromuscular disorders, identify pathways for future therapies and optimize care to improve the quality of life for Canadians affected by neuromuscular disorders
