Myhre Syndrome Foundation (MSF)
Grants to USA, Canada, and International post-doctoral students, research scientists, and professors at academic institutions or affiliated with the pharmaceutical industry for research related to Myhre syndrome. Funding is intended for novel approaches to treatment, to raise funding, to encourage early-career researchers to pursue Myhre research, and to discover a cure.
The purpose of the MSF is to serve Myhre syndrome families by providing a network of hope and support and to collaborate with scientific and medical communities to encourage and fund promising research and advocate for better treatments and a cure for those with Myhre syndrome.
