Joshua Frase Fellowship at Wake Forest University for CNM/MTM research

Since the inception of our foundation, we have committed ourselves to supporting a variety of different types of medical research with the common goal of finding a cure for Myotubular myopathy.  We believe that it is through different streams of medicine and science working together from which a cure or treatment will be found.  Over the years, we have supported research that spans areas as vastly different as regenerative medicine, molecular biology, and large animal studies.  Because of our dedication to supporting various types of research, the Joshua Frase Fellowship at Wake Forest Institute is a perfect fit for our foundations.

The Joshua Frase Fellowship at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine supports one aspiring medical doctor or medical/scientific researcher every summer through the university’s Summer Scholar Program.  The Summer Scholar Program is a program that seeks to bring together fields of science that are traditionally disparate with the understanding that the field of Regenerative Medicine can not exist without multiple fields of science involved.  The student who receives the Joshua Frase Fellowship will undergo a rigorous 10-week course which will expose them to multidisciplinary research driven by real world clinical needs, provide training in a strong team environment and facilitate their education as they go on to become part of the next generation of medical researchers and doctors.

It is our great honor to support the next generation of students who are seeking excellence in their fields in order to one day help our children. Please take a moment to read letters from our Fellowship scholars.
