When you contribute to Cure CMD you have several options.
You can contribute to a General CMD Fund that supports annual CMD scientific conferences, the annual CMD Family Conference, the CMD International Registry and CMD initiatives.
You can contribute to a General CMD Research Fund that supports research across CMD subtypes including CMD merosin positive, lamin A/C and integrin alpha 7 and 9.
You can also contribute to a specific CMD subtype Research Fund for collagen VI, merosin deficient, dystroglycanopathies and SEPN1 related myopathies (SEPN1 and RYR1). These bucket funds will finance CMD research specific to that subtype. A typical CMD research grant gets funded between $30-50,000 annually.
All CMD research financed is selected through a rigorous grant application and review process provided by international scientific peers and the Cure CMD Scientific and Medical Advisory Board. To read more about Cure CMD grant policies and applications, go to www.curecmd.org/scientist
