Travel bursaries

To ensure equity of care for patients with rare neuromuscular diseases across Europe, the ERN EURO-NMD is strongly committee to boost Training and Continuous Education Programmes.


EURO-NMD will soon be announcing details of our next round of bursaries and how to apply for them.


The bursary scheme is open to young researchers/doctors under the age of 40 years old that belong to one of the EURO-NMD healthcare providers.

Please note: You will be required to deliver a short presentation the meeting you attended as a result of receiving this bursary at our Annual Board Meeting in 2021.

We are delighted to announce the successful applicants for the latest round of travel bursaries.

Nicole Voet is from Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen department of Rehabilitation in the Netherlands. Her current research project focuses on measuring, exploring and diminishing of muscle fatigue in neuromuscular disorders. Nicole also recently delivered a very popular webinar entitled ‘Exercise in Neuromuscular Disease‘ which forms part of our ongoing webinar series.

The second successful applicant is Rocio Nur Villar Quiles from Neuromuscular Reference Centre PitiSalptrire Hospital in Paris. Rocio finished his neurology training in Madrid in 2017. Since November 2019 he had been working as a junior neurolgist Neuromuscular Reference Centre in Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital where he was been mainly focussed on collagen VI related disorders.
