Our Funding Priorities
FSHD Society research and fellowship grant awards provide vital startup funding for investigators in FSHD and research projects on FSHD. The fellowship program allows innovative and entrepreneurial research to develop and ultimately attract funding from large funding sources such as the US National Institutes of Health (NIH). Without the FSH Society research and fellowships program, many key initiatives in FSHD research might never have had the chance to begin. Well over 300 peer-reviewed papers have been published by FSH Society-funded researchers.
The FSHD Society convenes the annual FSHD International Research Connect Congress to review progress towards scientific goals and set research priorities for the coming year.
