Don’t miss this informative webinar on CureDuchenne Link: a combined patient registry and biobank that collects survey results, clinical data, medical records, genomic data and biosamples in a single database. Learn how this platform opens up vital resources to support a wide range of research, answers questions, and accelerates discovery to bring the community treatments faster.
Join us and learn why “Together, we WILL cure Duchenne” isn’t just a community tagline, it’s the foundation we must build on to achieve our goals.
