The End Duchenne Grant Award Program was created by PPMD in partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in an effort to ensure continuation of promising Duchenne research and translation to human studies. The End Duchenne Grant Award Program is a bridge grant provided by PPMD to selected research projects that receive scores beyond the current funding paylines of the NIH Institutes and Centers supporting Duchenne research.

Explains Ms. Furlong, "With its research budget growing tighter each year, the NIH can fund only a fraction of the many promising applications it receives. Currently, only those grants which score in the top percentiles are able to be funded."'/>"/>
