Update in Neuromuscular Disorders 2021

Tuesday 4 – Wednesday 5th May 2021 
2021 saw our conference move online for the first time.

This 2-day virtual clinical course on childhood and adult neuromuscular disorders covered a range of disorders including Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy (DMD) and other muscular dystrophies, spinal muscular atrophy, (SMA), neuropathies, myopathies, channelopathies and mitochondrial disorders.  This year there was a particular emphasis on transitional diseases i.e. diseases which start in childhood but need to be managed throughout life including DMD and SMA. Recent advances in therapies for these conditions were covered.
