Statement: Cancellation of 2020 research Grant Round

Muscular Dystrophy UK regrets to announce that, due to the financial effect COVID-19 is having on our ability to generate income, we are cancelling the current Grant Round in 2020.

We have not taken this decision lightly as we look to protect the research we are invested in as far as we possibly can.

We will continue to work alongside the sector in particular with the Association of Medical Research Charities to appeal to UK Research and Innovation and the government for support with funding for medical research charities.

Dr Kate Adcock, Director of Research and Innovation, Muscular Dystrophy UK
