This second two-day conference hosted by the MRC Centre for Neuromsucular Diseases, and the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign showcased the best UK neuromuscular science, and highlighted its translation into patient benefit. The conference included invited keynote speakers providing state of the art overviews, as well as platform and poster presentations from submitted abstracts. Professor Dame Kay Davies delivered the John Walton Lecture. Both days of the two-day conference were designed to engage basic and clinical neuromuscular scientists and neuromuscular clinicians, and the meeting fulfilled the aims of the previous MDC run symposium with parallel sessions on 26th March for the therapy networks.
