Stanford University has created the Myotonic Dystrophy Biobank to aid researchers in advancing therapies.
In early May, the Foundation announced a Request for Applications for this year's MDF Fund-a-Fellow program. The Fund-a-Fellow program supports our commitment to Care and a Cure for myotonic dystrophy by attracting new investigators to the field of DM research, ultimately advancing DM science and the search for treatments.
Stanford University has launched the DM Biobank to provide high-quality DM biological samples to researchers around the world. By participating in the Biobank, DM community members can play an important role in the development of new therapies that may help patients today and for generations to come.
