Myaware supports people with myasthenia and their families and strives to increase public and medical awareness of the condition. Myaware is pleased to be able to offer funding for a three-year Fellowship, to carry out research into any aspect of myasthenia gravis (MG) to start in summer/autumn 2023.

This fellowship will enable the trainee to undertake a substantial research project related to myasthenia gravis, leading to a higher degree (DPhil / PhD). The project can be laboratory or clinically based. If the successful applicant is a clinician, during the tenure the trainee would be expected to participate in clinical training across the field of neuromuscular disorders, with the expectation of being able to offer a specialist service for such patients in their senior clinical career.

An initial, brief application should provide a description of:

  1. Project with a brief assessment of the project’s relevance to myaware’s patient population
  2. If known, details of the possible applicant
  3. The supervision arrangements
  4. If a clinical project is proposed, clinical training provision
  5. An outline budget

Letters of interest should be received by ([email protected]) by 1st August 2022. A full application should be received by 1st November 2022.

In addition, myaware are looking to fund a number of smaller research grant applications that strive to improve our understanding of MG and related disorders, improve patient treatment and disease management. We would particularly, but not exclusively, support applications from research nurses, and other support staff involved in treatment and Quality of Life. For more information on how to apply for these smaller grants, which can be made at anytime, please contact Sarah Cuthell.
