Hope Through Research
Scientific discoveries are rarely made by single scientists in isolation. MDA helps bring together scientists and clinicians from around the world to research conferences to present their results, form new collaborations and learn the latest developments in the field. This allows research to accelerate toward treatments and cures.
MDA Annual Conference Series
MDA is committed to enhancing the communication of new research findings and of information relating to the delivery of effective medical care for neuromuscular diseases. To achieve this goal, MDA hosts an annual conference series, with scientific and clinical conferences held in alternate years.
Join us for the 2018 MDA Clinical Conference in Arlington, VA from March 11-14. Register Now.
BMD Conference Series
This conference series — available free of charge to anyone affected by Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD), as well as the individual’s family and friends — is designed to bring together members of the BMD community for informative presentations and discussions.
Support for Other Conferences
MDA supports conferences, meetings and workshops hosted by other groups that facilitate the exchange of scientific ideas and crucial information relevant to diseases under the MDA umbrella.
