|Following an intensive national fundraising campaign and a massive influx of support from local communities accross Ireland, we has been able to successfully launch our first ever "Duchenne Ireland Research Grant".
The funding opportunity is targeted at research projects directed towards finding a treatment or potential cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Approximately €200,000 will be allocated in this round of funding and applications are welcome for some or all of this amount.
Researchers accross the globe have been made aware of the grant thanks to the kind people within the TREAT-NMD Network, who have communicated the grant issue to their network of researchers.
The deadline for receipt of completed forms is 15th October 2008. All research project applications will be assessed by our scientific advisory panel and final decisions on funding allocations are expected within 6-8 weeks of the closing date for receipt of applications.
For further details download the application form here.
We will continue to actively fundraise and challenge ourselves to create new ways of bring awareness of duchenne to the people of Ireland and bring funding directly to researchers who desperately want to end the needless suffering of Duchenne children.
Join our fundraising initiatives or be creative and "do your own thing !" for Duchenne Ireland to ensure that our next research grant will be just around the corner.
The countdown to our next research grant has begun...
