FSH Society is Awarded $130,000 Marjorie Bronfman Grant for FSHD Research for 2009!
The generosity and commitment of Mrs. Marjorie Bronfman to FSHD research
began in 1997. Mrs. Bronfman has renewed her commitment through 2009 with
a new grant of $130,000. Through a process of review and recommendation by
the Society’s Scientific Advisory Board, grants are awarded for two-year
research fellowships (US$30,000-US$35,000/year) for research projects that
show extraordinary promise to find the cause of FSHD. The 2009 contribution,
and the many grants that have preceded it, significantly aids progress in FSHD
research. The FSH Society is deeply indebted to Mrs. Bronfman and the
Marjorie and Gerald Bronfman Foundation for this new opportunity to advance
FSHD research and for the advances that have been made possible worldwide
over these years.
