DMRF Canada has encouraged and supported research related to the causes, mechanisms, prevention, and treatment of all forms of dystonia. The DMRF Canada’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 Canada will remain open to new investigator-initiated ideas and approaches, which will be accepted throughout the year. Opportunities will be posted throughout the year, along with information on guidelines and application deadlines.
