What will you be funding?
Early research and clinical trials are hampered by a shortage of researchers and specialists. We identify promising projects and invest in their early stages, which can lead to huge scientific advances. Read more about the world-class pioneering research we are funding.
The Richard Attenborough Fellowship Fund will drive the research he worked so hard to develop, seeing treatments progress to clinical trial for the benefit the families affected by muscular dystrophy and other related neuromuscular conditions.
