A minimum of 40 fellowships from the WMS Education Fund (funded by an annual royalty from Neuromuscular Disorders from Elsevier).
Additional Fellowships from other funding sources.
The program committee selects the recipients on the quality of the abstracts submitted and the analysis of a small submitted CV (including the special interest and expertise, details of current post, and the importance of the work to be presented). Applicants should be in training and not yet in a definitive established post. Those who wish to be considered for fellowship should indicate so and provide the necessary information as requested at the time of abstract submission on the online abstract submission page.
The Duchenne Research Fund for the best presentation by a young myologist on therapy of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The President has also decided to sponsor two (or more) additional annual fellowships (500 euros) from the President's Fund for senior myologists, who have been active in WMS in the past but are now retired and have constraints on their available funds. Applicants should provide a short review (up to 250 words) of their activities in the neuromuscular field and their contributions to WMS. Application should be sent through online no later than March 31, 2012.
