For over 65 years, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has focused on providing research grants for scientists working towards cures for neuromuscular diseases, and support services for kids and adults who suffer from such diseases such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy).
Neuromuscular diseases affect the muscles and/or their direct nervous system control, which results in loss of physical strength and mobility. The MDA's mission is to help accelerate the development of treatments and cures based on the latest research, while providing comprehensive healthcare to those who are affected today by neuromuscular diseases.
Current highlights achieved by the MDA include:
- Funding about 150 research projects around the world
- Awarded nearly 70 MDA research grants in 2016 with a total funding commitment of more than $16 million
- Contributed to dozens of clinical trials now underway
