BIND Project

We’re pleased to share with you the newly launched website for the BIND project and we’re delighted to be a part of the scientific team. It’s the first project of this scale to improve characterisation of brain involvement in Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy (DMD and BMD). This EU-funded project, connecting 19 partners from Europe and Japan, aims to address a crucial aspect of DMD and BMD that was already recognised in 1861, when Duchenne de Boulogne first described the neuromuscular condition. In the last few decades however, most of the efforts have focused on improving outcomes related to muscle weakness, whilst brain involvement has received less attention.
