Duchenne Ireland have awarded a research grant to Professor Steve Wilton's Lab in Australia under the Duchenne Ireland Research Grant Program in 2010,
with co. applicants being NUI Maynooth. The process involves samples to be given from the boys and skin cell cultures developed and sent to the Australian Laboratory
to identify specific chemistries that perform strong exon skipping for the boys specific cells.
Duchenne Ireland are currently seeking interested parents based in Ireland who's boy(s) have Duchenne and are eligible for Exon Skipping
(Genetics report and genetics counselling will help determine this) and where the parents are interested in personalized exon skipping research.
Interested parents should contact John Gorman on 083-3348634 for further details.
