How the Money Will Be Spent – Caring Matters Now PhD Fellowship 2015

This new post at Great Ormond Street Hospital/Institute of Child Health in London is the first Fellowship to be endowed by Caring Matters Now, and is a major advance in funding ongoing research into CMN.

The post will be a full time position for three years for a PhD student, who will be supervised by Dr Kinsler, and starting in the first half of 2015. This will be the first project dedicated to looking at possible therapies for CMN, and the commitment and generosity of Caring Matters Now has been essential in getting this important research off the ground.

The partnership between the patient support group and the doctors/researchers continues to be a very powerful force in achieving results. The Fellow will report results back to Caring Matters Now on an annual basis, and present his or her results to the family day meetings, as well as to national and international conferences, to maximise the audience for the results.

If you want to support the work of Dr Kinsler and the NEW Great Ormond Street/CMN Fellowship with future research projects into life-saving treatments for Congenital Melanocytic Naevi, you can do so by text donating to Caring Matters Now and making a difference today.
