Our Team

We are a group of motivated, passionate and focused individuals with strong scientific backgrounds. All proposal reviews and funding decisions are carried out exclusively by this in-house team. The team members have left the traditional path of an experimental biologist and no longer have any conflicting interests in academic science. Having a team dedicated to one cause has enabled the Jain Foundation to become a center of excellence, capable of comprehensive and real time assessment of the state of the dysferlin field, combined with the means to foster collaborations between previously isolated researchers.
