SAM Europe – Grant Application

Expire le 13 mai 2024

SMA Europe launches Calls for SMA Research Proposals every other year.

This new Call for Spinal muscular atrophy research projects is open to research proposals that address the needs of people who live with SMA and demonstrate a clear pathway to impacting those in the short or longer term. In particular, priority will be given to projects concentrating on the following areas:

  1. Reviving the motor unit in patients with SMA with a specific interest for the role of NMJ (dys)function (including skeletal muscle and development/developmental vulnerability of motor neurons in the spinal cord/brain stem).
  2. Biomarkers within and beyond the neuromuscular system.
  3. How metabolism is affected in SMA and how this might influence peripheral organs.

SMA Europe strives for earlier diagnosis, effective treatments and optimal care for people who live with SMA. We do this by elevating the patient’s voice, by empowering member organisations to advocate and campaign at a national level and through harnessing that network to advance research and influence stakeholders at European level.
