Save the Date – NMD4C Summer School 2024

Save the Date! The NMD4C will be hosting its inaugural basic science research summer school for neuromuscular research trainees over May 27th-28th, 2024 in Montreal, QC. 

The annual NMD4C summer school will serve to provide lecture-based and hands-on training workshops to neuromuscular trainees in cutting-edge wet lab and bioinformatics techniques, while providing an environment for trainees to present their research and network in-person with colleagues and senior investigators from across Canada. This inaugural edition of the summer school will focus on two key themes over the two days: cell culture models derived from patient biopsies, identification of biomarkers, and the use of AAV for rapid genetic manipulations and development of individual based therapeutic approaches (led by Dr Benoit Gentil) and bioinformatics analysis of bulk and single-cell RNA-sequencing data sets (led by Dr Martine Tétreault).  

Supporting preclinical trainees and scientists is a key focus of the network, and we are aiming to make this event as accessible as possible for trainees to attend from across Canada. There will be no registration fee and support will be available for accommodation in Montreal and for travel. 

Our organizing team is hard at work planning the event, and we will provide more details in early January including the event program, information on travel bursaries and accommodation, and how you can apply!

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.
