CMT4B3 Research Foundation

The explicit goal of the CMT4B3 Research Foundation is to expedite development of a treatment or cure for CMT4B3/SBF1/MTMR5.

 

CMT4B3 Research Foundation Grant

Hunter’s CMT4B3 Research Foundation will grant awards to principal investigators, physician residents, hospitals, universities and clinicians who are interested in studying CMT4B3. Our grants are intended to help researchers explore novel ideas and answer questions related to the clinical aspects, therapies and/or genetic causes of CMT4B3.

Research proposals will be carefully vetted by the Scientific Advisory Board. The Board evaluates each proposal based on the excellence of the investigator, the work plan and the environment, as well as the project’s ability to be translated into treatments for people with CMT4B3.  For more information on this opportunity, please click here.  Questions? Please contact Alessandra Bolino, bolino.alessandra@hsr.it  and  Robin Schultz, info@cmt4b3research.org.
