The uOttawa Centre for Neuromuscular Disease is hosting the 4th Ottawa International Conference on Neuromuscular Disease and Biology on September 7-9, 2017.

The Ottawa NMD 2017 conference will offer an outstanding program emphasizing recent breakthroughs in basic and translational research and clinical discoveries in neuromuscular disease.

The Conference is structured for both basic researchers and clinicians/physicians and will feature internationally-recognized invited speakers highlighting advances in all aspects of NMD research, including new clinical diagnostic techniques, biology of disease pathogenesis, basic muscle and stem cell biology, and promising therapies to treat these devastating disorders.

As in past years, trainees are also encouraged to attend and participate – selected abstracts will be featured for platform presentation during the scientific sessions, and all posters are eligible for top poster awards.
