As the leading Duchenne muscular dystrophy charity in the UK, we want to find effective treatments for DMD and end its devastating impact. We connect the best researchers with industry, the NHS and families to advance and accelerate every stage of drug development.
We need to go further than anyone has before to find effective treatments. This means setting our ambitions high and overcoming every barrier in our way.
We’re going to do it faster, because this generation of people living with DMD can’t wait.
The only way we can achieve this is together. We create a network of mutual support for families. We collaborate with scientists and the pharmaceutical industry, bringing them together to share knowledge. And we work with health services so that patients get the care they need.
