2024 Recipients of NMD4C and MDC Neuromuscular Fellowship Funding Competition
Together the Neuromuscular Disease Network for Canada (NMD4C) and Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC) are excited to announce the 2024 recipients of our neuromuscular fellowship funding competition to award postdoctoral fellowships in NMD research and clinical fellowships in neuromuscular medicine and electromyography! NMD4C and MDC are committed to empowering the next generation of early-career researchers and clinicians in building successful careers in neuromuscular disease (NMD) research and clinical practice to improve neuromuscular care, research, treatment, and health outcomes for all Canadians.
The 2024 competition provides salary support for two early-career scientists to conduct postdoctoral studies in laboratories focused on NMD research, and three early-career neurologists to participate in neuromuscular medicine and electromyography training programs. Successful applicants receive $40 000 in funding over a one-year period for postdoctoral fellowships, and $80 000 in funding over a one-year period for clinical fellowships. Since 2022, this competition has provided $1 million in funding to support neuromuscular postdoctoral researchers and clinical fellows in Canada, made possible by generous supporters of MDC, with one clinical fellow each year by the Canadian Society for Clinical Neurophysiologists.
This competition involves an extensive review by leading Canadian neuromuscular researchers and clinicians to ensure the top-ranked candidates are selected for this funding opportunity. From the entire neuromuscular community, congratulations to all 2024 recipients!
