Grant Funding

Research that can identify treatments or cures is key to improving the lives of patients with neuromuscular disease. The American Neuromuscular Foundation (ANF) is committed to advancing neuromuscular research both through independently funding research and through collaboration with other funding sources such as our current collaboration with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Development Grants

The foundation offers development grants intended as seed money to help launch research into muscle and nerve disorders by promising new researchers. Applications should directly relate to a muscle and nerve disorder covered by the AANEM.

ANF/MDA Co-Funded Grants

Neuromuscular research projects may be eligible for development or basic research grants co-funded by the ANF and the MDA.
