Lymn Foundation

Grant Recipients





Professional associations, and scientific and educational organizations organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, may nominate students and young researchers who show promise of making major contributions to the study of muscle biology.  Individuals will be chosen strictly on the basis of merit.  Past performance such as grades, important publications, and other writings, as well as letters of recommendation, will be the basis of selection.  Individuals are expected to attend scientific meetings or seminars given by scientific or educational organizations where eminent scientists discuss advancements in the field of muscle biology.


To be eligible to be selected for a grant an individual must be:Add

(a) a student or scientist in the first ten years of his or her career;

(b) a Ph.D. candidate close to completion of the degree or a researcher with Ph.D.;

(c) involved in the scientific or clinical discipline related to muscle biology and muscle disease; and

(d) participate in the scientific meeting or conference at which the award will be presented.



The Foundation may make grants to a scientific or educational organization organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, to enhance a particular scientific meeting or seminar regarding muscle biology.  The Foundation will limit its grant of funds to meetings that have already obtained the majority of their funding, show promise of developing cutting-edge advancements in the field of muscle biology, and bring together eminent scientists.  The grant of funds to a meeting will be used solely to enhance a particular aspect of the meeting that shows promise of a new and noteworthy initiative.  The Lymn Foundation will determine whether the use of the funds will make a difference in the overall success of the meeting.  In selecting a meeting or seminar, the Foundation will look to the meeting description, the aspect of the meeting to be enhanced, the abstracts of the papers to be presented, and the credentials of the presenters.
