The Discovery Network from My Name’5 Doddie Foundation supports research teams led by UK-based researchers working on motor neuron disease (MND). This is a new funding opportunity for multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional teams to apply for £1 million over 3 years. Teams will take on bold ideas and innovative approaches to better understand the biology of MND, with a focused goal of identifying new therapeutic targets. The Network will be underpinned by a culture of collaboration and open science. My Name’5 Doddie Foundation will facilitate activities of the network and create opportunities for rapid translation of promising findings.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Teams must be multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional
  • The lead applicant must be based within a UK academic institution, but collaborators can be based elsewhere in the world
  • The lead investigator at each collaborating institution should be named as a co-applicant
  • We encourage postdoctoral researchers working towards independence to be named as lead or co-applicants
  • Commercial companies (such as pharmaceutical and biotech companies) can be named as co-applicants but will not receive grant funding and must adhere to our policies including our open science policy

Applicants may apply for up to 1 million GBP over 3 years (no indirect costs).

Letters of intent are due on May 17, 2024. Invited applicants will be notified in June with invited full applications due in September 2024 – applicants are advised to contact the Foundation to confirm the full application deadline.
