"My little friend Jacob told me his only wish in the universe is a cure for his muscular dystrophy.  It's not a question of whether, but when it will be conquered.  Let it be for this generation."  Paul Wellstone

 


In April 2003, the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Center was created to facilitate development of clinical, translational, and basic research on muscular dystrophy, to enhance and support clinical care of patients with muscular dystrophy, to improve educational experience for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students interested in the fields of basic and clinical muscle research, and to increase interaction and support from the regional community of patients and families concerned about muscular dystrophy.
