Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and Sparks have today opened a National Funding Call for £2M of investment in Child Health Research. We are delighted to announce that this year, they have partnered with 5 rare disease charities, including the Myotubular Trust. This partnership furthers their emphasis on complex childhood illness, including rare diseases. They are specifically asking for applications that aim to significantly advance the search to find a cure and/or a treatment for any of the genetic forms of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy.

This funding call particularly encourages applications from early career researchers and those who are still consolidating their independent research careers. They welcome international collaboration and co-operation too.

We are proud to be part of a partnership with these two organisations who have done so much to further the health of children, and we thank all our donors and fundraisers who make it possible for us to be part of such a partnership.
