Building Muscle Initiative Grant Opportunity
The deadline for submission is June 1, 2014 at 5:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time.
Our Mission is to find treatments for Nemaline Myopathy (NM).
A Foundation Building Strength (AFBS) is a non-profit organization striving to stimulate and advance the science of treating NM and related conditions, ultimately laying the groundwork for the development of commercially available treatments for these diseases..
“Building Muscle” Initiative
AFBS is excited to announce an ambitious initiative to fund up to $1M in research grants, making a significant contribution to our mission to find treatments for NM. Historically, AFBS has funded research that will advance our understanding of the pathogenesis of NM in order to design and optimize treatment and management strategies. For this round of funding, the primary objective of the Building Muscle Initiative is to support investigators interested in these three areas:
1. Improving Access to Human Samples: Access to human tissue is a bottleneck in research.
Coming up with a good solution that may leverage our connections to families with NM will be a big help to future research in the field. This area includes development of a more comprehensive NM tissue repository either centrally or locally such that researchers have a larger collection of easily accessible NM muscle samples at their disposal in order to conduct their research. This would include development of a protocol for tissue procurement from patients. This area could also include creation of a registry that provides for patient consent, easy searching, and a process for procuring samples. Projects that develop outreach and strategies to build up the number of muscle samples will also be considered in this area.
2. Improving Pulmonary Function: Any project that studies the improvement of pulmonary function in NM patients will be considered. This could include the design and conduct of clinical trials whose aim is to investigate methods to improve pulmonary muscle strength and to optimize clearance of secretions to ultimately improve quality of life for those living with NM. Endpoints might include impact of exercise, optimization of support for related sleep disorders, or development of methods to more effectively measure pulmonary function.
Modalities could include therapeutics, exercise, or devices. Development of validated endpoints of pulmonary function in NM patients would also be considered in this area.
3. Improving Our Understanding of NM: This area includes studies on the prevalence and/or natural history of NM and related disorders, or the development of meaningful endpoints that could be used in clinical development. For example, this could mean clinical research and data collection in order to more clearly define the natural history of NM such that clinicians can better understand the progression of different severities of disease over the course of the lifespan.

Therefore the principal investigator must be eligible to submit such an application.
Funding priority will be given to the projects that illustrate:
Clear plans for extramural submissions.
Direct clinical and translational impact.
Clear ability to complete the research within a one year period.
