Funds and appeals

Every day MDUK is working towards a future with effective treatments and ultimately cures for all muscle-wasting and associated conditions, and no limits in life for people who are affected. We fund pioneering research for better treatments to improve people’s lives today and transform those of future generations. And every day scientists are finding out more about the conditions, so that we can bring new treatments and new hope to people.

We’re determined that research is given every chance to succeed. We’ve set up a range of funds for research into specific conditions, so that we can bring new treatments and new hope to people.

With your support, we’ve been able to fund research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) and Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD), and clinical trials for Duchenne.

And by supporting our Lord Walton Fellowship Fund and Scientists of the Future Fund, you’re helping to support young researchers whose work will shape our understanding of neuromuscular conditions or uncover potential new treatments.

Together we’re bringing forward the day when there are effective treatments available for all muscle-wasting and associated conditions. Thank you for your continued support.
