Research in the Neuromuscular Disease Center includes therapeutic trials, pathophysiology, animal and cellular models of disease, molecular genetic alterations, pathomechanisms and identification of new treatments of neuromuscular diseases. Our goals are to understand the molecular pathology and its relationship to the metabolic alterations that cause the manifestations of each disease and to develop more rational approaches to their treatment.
