Conference Topics

The 2022 conference will explore all aspects of pre-clinical, translational, and clinical research and care across neuromuscular diseases (NMD) to support the development of better care and treatments for our community. It will present concurrent clinical and translational sessions on topics highlighting:

  • New Gene Discoveries in NMD
  • Facilitating Multi-Practice Collaboration to Optimize Patient Care
  • Impact of Gene Transfer Therapy on Long-term Multidisciplinary Care
  • Evolution of Ultra-Rare Disease Clinical Trial Design

“This is a time of great promise and rapid advances in neuromuscular research and treatment. Our conference brings together the most influential scientists from academia and industry, as well as clinicians and patient advocacy groups, to learn the latest developments in therapies and care that will transform the lives of people with neuromuscular disease.”

— Donald S. Wood, PhD, President & CEO, at MDA

To promote greater representation of the neuromuscular disease community at the conference, MDA is encouraging participation by patient advocates and patient advocacy organizations, who will receive a reduced registration fee and have access to all sessions.

All COVID-19 safety precautions will be taken and enforced at the conference.
