Defeat Duchenne Canada is the leading funder of Duchenne muscular dystrophy research in Canada, granting $1.14M toward three promising research projects in 2022 – making the total awarded over our 27-year history $16M.
Thank you to our donors and supporters who joined us on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, to hear about the latest achievements from our funded scientists. It’s only through your support that researchers from around the world have made great strides, working towards increasing the quality and longevity of life for people living with Duchenne. The pipeline of potential treatments has never been so full of promise, and we invite you to learn about this year’s research investments by watching the recording below.
Our vision is a future without Duchenne. We know we can get there, and we know that research is the key. But we also know this: if research doesn’t get funded, it doesn’t happen. Thank you for making this annual celebration possible.
