We are working with scientists and clinicians worldwide and won’t stop until we find treatments and cures for all muscle-wasting conditions.

Since 1959, the generosity and dedication of our supporters have meant we’ve been able to invest more than £55 million in high quality research.

We use a robust international peer-review system, and have laid the foundations for the first potential treatments for some muscle-wasting conditions.

We are pressing to ensure early participation for UK patients in clinical trials. We fund clinical trial co-ordinators and the national neuromuscular database to ensure vital patient information is available to clinicians and researchers.
