The John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre was launched in November 2014. The Centre brings together and consolidates Newcastle’s distinguished, international, and world-leading record in research and care for neuromuscular diseases. The team based at the Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University and its associated hospitals work together towards the development and application of genomic and translational medicine to improve health outcomes of people living with neuromuscular diseases.

The John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre is structured around five important strands of activity – clinical care, clinical research, diagnostics, basic research and strategic partnerships and networking – but all are strongly interlinked and the work across these teams is key to the success and impact in the neuromuscular field.
