The deadline for applications is 28 February 2011 for funding to start in September 2011. All projects will be submitted to external independent scientific review and priority given to those felt of the highest quality. A maximum of £80,000 per annum is available. Applications for funding of smaller projects are also welcome. The Guillain-Barré Syndrome Support Group (GBSSG) is committed to supporting research into the causes and treatment of GBS, CIDP and related conditions.

Information for your Patients and their Families
There is a wealth of information on this site that you can download, print and give to your patients, their families or friends. It may be more convenient to give them our Web address or, if you live in the UK or Republic of Ireland, our Helpline number (see menu left). Perhaps the most convenient way of putting people in touch with us is to download and print our Quick Guide.
