Our friends at Myotubular Trust have places on offer in several fundraising events in 2020. As there is no public funding available to fund research for centronuclear and myotubular myopathy, the Trust rely heavily on people taking part in these events and the support of the networks of those affected by the condition.
Given the rarity of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy, this network is relatively small but the funds raised by supporters to date has made a huge difference in the journey to finding a treatment for the conditions, whether it’s contributing to Ana Buj Bello’s work on gene therapy, Jocelyn Laporte’s work on DNM2 down regulation, Jim Dowling’s pre-clinical work on re-purposing tamoxifen for x-linked myotubular myopathy, or going toward the next grant round. You can see what a difference a small army of supporters can make below.
