The Myositis Association recognizes that the myositis patient’s best hope for a cure lies in research.
TMA offers a research fellowship program to attract and encourage post-doctoral trainees (PhD and MD) and young physicians to pursue careers in the field of myositis research. TMA also funds research grants to initiate innovative pilot projects that will support larger funding opportunities.
Since 2002, The Myositis Association has funded research designed to understand the underlying causes and natural progression of myositis, develop better treatments and more effective therapies, and ultimately to create a cure for this collection of disabling diseases. Since that time, TMA has approved 61 research projects, including grants and fellowships, totaling over $8 million.
