After spending two years at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Cameron Niazi pursued a Ph.D. at the University of Florida in Dr. Eric Wang's lab. Attracted by the lab's integration of basic science and translational research, joining the Wang Lab also provided a personal connection to DM1.
In honor of Rare Disease Month 2024, the Global Alliance for Myotonic Dystrophy Awareness, for the 4th year running, proudly stands together to celebrate the remarkable strength and resilience of the myotonic dystrophy (DM) community around the globe.
We are thrilled to announce that the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation (MDF) recently approved substantial funding of $700,000 towards myotonic dystrophy research grants and fellowships through two groundbreaking initiatives: the MDF Research Fellowship Program and the Early Career Grant Program, made possible by the generous support of the DM donor community.
MDF is bringing the Conference to a City Near YOU in 2024! We are excited for our six Regional Conferences across the United States. These one-day conferences will connect local communities, bring DM resources to the DM community, and provide attendees with the opportunity to connect more closely with local researchers and clinicians.
