Fall Cycle 2019 - Research Proposals
The FSHD Society offers investigator-initiated research grants to support basic, translational and clinical-based research in Facioscapulohumeral muscular Dystrophy (FSHD). The application process begins with the submission of a brief Letter of Intent (LOI) describing the aims and objectives of the proposal. Once approved, investigators will be invited to submit a full proposal for consideration and review by the FSHD Society's Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The LOI portal will remain open for submissions until December 15th, 2019. Grant applications are due before midnight on December 31, 2019. Investigators will be notified of the outcome of their submissions by then end of the first quarter 2020.
- Letters of Intent (LOI) due by December 15th, 2019
- Grant proposals (by invitation) due by December 31st, 2019
- Decisions communicated by March 31st, 2020
Please note that preference will be given to postdoctoral trainees, clinical fellows and younger faculty establishing their first independent laboratory (less than 5 years). More established researchers should allow their postdocs and fellows to apply for these awards directly, while providing mentorship and guidance for a successful outcome to the proposal. The FSHD Society will no longer support pre-doctoral training fellowships.
