Matthew Disney, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute in Florida, has been working with a talented research team in his lab on a number of projects, including one studying how small molecules may target toxic RNA folds in DM2.
Dr. Richard Moxley, Director of the Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Center at the University of Rochester and a global leader in DM clinical care and research recently talked with MDF about his long and exceptionally distinguished career in neurology.
MDF has partnered with Dr. Nick Johnson, assistant professor of neurology at the University of Utah and MDF Fund A Fellow grant recipient, to collect data on how the lives of women with DM are affected during and after pregnancy.
Researchers at important academic labs around the US have recently published exciting new information about advances in DM research.
Each year MDF awards grants to postdoctoral fellows to encourage research in the management, treatment and cure of DM. We’re happy to announce this year’s award recipients: Dr. Jintang Du of The Scripps Research Institute and Dr. Yao Yao of The Rockefeller University.
