The explicit goal of the Jain Foundation is to expedite development of a treatment or cure for the dysferlinopathies (LGMD2B and Miyoshi Myopathy). Your proposed project MUST have application to these diseases, or it will not be considered. For examples of the types of projects we fund, please view our currently funded projects.
- All proposals are reviewed in-house by the Jain Foundation scientific advisory board.
