Stories of resilience: funding medical research

  • Matcha and Beyond 191 King's Road London SW3 5ED (map)

A breakfast conversation with medical research champions Sharmila Collins of CureEB and Gisela Niedzielski of BibiFund. In partnership with Matcha & Beyond who will donate special prizes in aid of both foundations.


Following the life-changing diagnosis of their daughter’s rare disease and ensuing research into treatment options, Sharmila and Gisela each set up a foundation dedicated to raising both awareness and funds for medical research into two what they found out were underfunded areas – paediatric cancer and epidermolysis bullosa (EB). They will share their experience of setting up and running a medical aid foundation while facing personal challenges and how it has shaped their lives.
