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 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.
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.
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.
