Welcome to the Day Lab

Our Lab Efforts

Our Neuromuscular Division organizes a comprehensive effort to combat and conquer diseases of the peripheral nerves and muscles, including:

  • The Muscular Dystrophies (myotonic, Duchenne, limb girdle, facioscapulohumeral, and congenital muscular dystrophies)
  • Motor Neuron Disorders (ALS and SMA)
  • Neuromuscular Junction Disease (MG, CMS)
  • Peripheral Neuropathies (CMT, CIDP)

Our Lab Research

While keeping the patients and families foremost in mind, our research seeks to:

  • Define and understand genetic causes.
  • Clarify the molecular and cellular consequences of genetic change.
  • Determine the multisystemic features that are underappreciated but clinically significant consequence of these diseases.
  • Develop and improve methods for managing and treating each disease.
