United MSD Foundation is the first organization in North America dedicated to funding research for MSD. As a rare, fatal, inherited disorder of the nervous system, MSD has no known treatment or cure. MSD research has advanced through partnerships with the MSD Action Foundation in Dublin, Irleand.
United MSD Foundation is pleased to announce that funds are available to conduct research directly relevant to MSD, a rare, fatal, neurodegenerative disorder that strikes children. Research is needed across a broad spectrum addressing the function of SUMF1 and FGE Protein and the underlying mechanisms of neural dysfunction and degeneration in its absence.
Investigators are invited to compete the Expression of Interest Form below. Our Scientific Advisory Board will review the EOIs and decide which applicants are most like to advance understanding and meet needs according the Research Strategy.
