Development Grants are awarded to young researchers on the brink of becoming independent investigators, and are intended as seed money to help launch the scientific programs of promising new neuromuscular disease researchers. Development Grants are for $60,000 per year for 1-3 years. As their science advances, many recipients of Development Grants apply for and receive research support under the Research Grant program. Many have become SAC or MAC members.
MDA will consider an application for a research grant from a candidate who may be a member of a research team in the laboratory of an independent investigator (Principal Investigator) under whose guidance the applicant will be given flexibility to conduct a neuromuscular disease research project.
