Our commitment to supporting research

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland’s vision is for life without limits for people with muscular dystrophy and similar conditions. Life without limits includes research into treatments and ultimately a cure for the conditions. Finally, there are some exciting developments in research which is principally funded by large global organisations and pharmaceutical companies.

Even though Muscular Dystrophy Queensland is principally a services organisation, we do support research in multiple ways:

  • Each year, we set aside funding with a goal to build a research corpus
  • Through our Australian and global networks, we are able to provide information about progress in research in conditions experienced by our community
  • We also provide information about opportunities to participate in research and clinical trials.
