Innovations in Science
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.

2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the umbrella association transforming the lives of people affected by muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and related neuromuscular diseases (NMDs) through innovations in science and care.
