Meet the Clinical Care Strand

The John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre is structured around four important strands of activity – clinical care & diagnostics, clinical research, basic research and networking & collaborations – but all are strongly interlinked and the work across these teams is key to our success and impact in the neuromuscular field.
