Welcome to the Harvard Neuromuscular Disease Project
This project aims to study gene expression in normal and diseased muscle. Our researchers have a long and productive history defining the molecular genetics of human neuromuscular diseases. They are collaborating on this project in anticipation that the research will result in a better understanding of the pathology of specific neuromuscular diseases and in new approaches to treatment.
Overview: Learn about our mission and program goals.
