NMD4C to Develop a List of Canadian Neuromuscular Research Labs to Support Research Collaborations and Training

We are excited to launch an initiative from the NMD4C cell and animal-based NMD research tasks to develop a centralized list of Canadian neuromuscular research labs, providing a key resource to support research collaborations, sharing of expertise, and trainees to pursue mentorship and training in specific techniques or research areas.

In the first stage of this project, we will collect information from Canadian pre-clinical neuromuscular research labs that includes research interests, specialized techniques and expertise, and training capacity. This information will then be published as a centralized list of Canadian neuromuscular research labs on our website.

We need your help to collect this information! We invite all research labs to contribute to this centralized list by having a lab representative complete the collection form here: https://ca.research.net/r/CDN-preclinical-labs.

Organized under the network’s pre-clinical science pillar, the cell and animal-based NMD research tasks work jointly on a variety of projects with the goal of upskilling research trainees and building Canadian neuromuscular research capacity.

NMD4C Launch Survey to Assess Familiarity and Experience in Outcome Measures in NMDs

As we anticipate novel treatments for other neuromuscular conditions, we would like to understand your familiarity and experience with the outcome measures in clinical trials underway or for treatments for NMDs approved in other jurisdictions through a short survey.
