Findley Fellowship

Thomas Findley, MD, PhD, has made numerous contributions to the field of fascia research, including co-founding the International Fascia Research Congress and serving as the Executive Director from its inception through 2013. In this spirit and in honor of his 70th birthday, the Fascia Research Society created the Findley Fascia Fellowship Fund and Dr. Findley generously matched contributions.


The next round of proposals will open in December, 2022 for the Seventh International Fascia Research Congress in 2024.
