Research Funding Opportunities

DMRF Canada partners with the DMRF in the U.S.

For nearly 40 years the DMRF has encouraged and supported research related to the causes, mechanisms, prevention, and treatment of all forms of dystonia. The DMRF’s major funding mechanism is based on requests for applications focusing on selected research areas, formulated after scientific meetings and workshops.

As it has done in the past, the DMRF will remain open to new investigator initiated ideas and approaches, which will be accepted throughout the year.  RFAs are posted on the DMRF’s website once they have been released, along with information on guidelines and application deadlines.
