Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for medical research projects. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. Eligible uses of funding include equipment, travel, salary support, supplies, and other research-related items. Funding is intended to advance research to improve medical treatment and work towards a cure for Juvenile Myositis.

Grant applications are called for in the field of innovative approaches in the treatment of juvenile myositis. Pertinent, but not exhaustive, list of priorities includes:

  • Conducting analyses on samples and/or data available from innovative treatment clinical studies.
  • Collaboration with pharma companies or other research organizations that are developing new therapies that may have utility in the treatment of juvenile myositis. The collaboration may comprise generation of clinical protocols for new treatments and a defined route to funding a clinical study. Such proposals should include solid evidence of access to the therapy being proposed for investigation.
  • Clinical protocols for repurposed drugs for the treatment of juvenile myositis. Such proposals should include solid evidence of access to the therapy being proposed for investigation and a defined route to funding a clinical study.
  • Investigations of in vitro or in vivo models of juvenile myositis with the objective of development of new therapies.
