2018 National Conference and AGM

Please join the Muscular Dystrophy UK 2018 National Conference and AGM where you’ll meet others living with muscle-wasting conditions and enjoy a day filled with practical advice and information to improve your quality of life. You’ll hear from scientists and healthcare professionals as well as see the presentation of this years’ President’s Awards.

This year the keynote speaker is Professor George Dickson, Professor of Molecular Cell Biology at Royal Holloway University of London. He will be giving an update on the development of gene therapies for muscle-wasting conditions. Prof Dickson has spent most of his career studying muscle-wasting conditions, in particular Duchenne muscular dystrophy. His research focuses on developing genetic-based therapies such as exon skipping, genome editing and AAV gene therapies.
