Mitochondrial and Neuromuscular Diseases

Mitochondrial and Neuromuscular Diseases

In this theme, we research all aspects of neuromuscular and mitochondrial diseases including:

  • molecular genetics
  • drug targets and other therapeutic approaches
  • diagnostic technologies
  • clinical trials
  • coordinating patient registries and research databases for these rare diseases

Research impact and direction

We work with our patients to understand the impact of their conditions on daily life. Their input is crucial for determining our research directions.
This theme brings together our world-leading researchers. This includes the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre and the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research.
