> (gold level); Catabasis, Cytokinetics, Fate Therapeutics, Pfizer, PTC Therapeutics, Shire and Tivorsan Pharmaceuticals (silver level); and with special thanks going to ARMGO Pharma.

"The progress being made in neuromuscular disease research is truly astonishing, when you think of how far we've come with therapy development compared to where we stood only five years ago," said MDA President and CEO Steven M. Derks . "MDA families are praying and hoping for positive research outcomes leading to new therapies, and that's why I think it's absolutely essential for researchers to come together in a cooperative spirit to aid and inspire each other's efforts as much as possible."

Derks also said: "I'm confident that attendees will come away from this conference not only with fresh perspectives, but with a renewed sense of hope and optimism as we look to even more exciting developments in the months and years ahead."
