If you’re considering participating in a clinical study, you and your child may want to view Children speak: What it’s like to be a medical research subject. One of the patients in our Spinal Muscular Atrophy Program at Boston Children’s Hospital is interviewed.

A serious of videos narrated by Boston Children’s researcher Alan Beggs, PhD gives an in-depth picture of how muscles contract.

You can explore the Boston Children’s Stem Cell website to learn how researchers are working toward stem cell therapies for neuromuscular diseases and other disorders, to find out how stem cells work and to trace the history of research on them.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
