We at the University of Minnesota Paul & Sheila Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Center are dedicated to the treatment and care of those living with Muscular Dystrophy.
Each year, there are more and more clinical trials available that may help with the treatment and management of your neuromuscular disorder. We are able to offer many clinical studies at the University of Minnesota, as well as have the ability to partner with other research and Universities nationwide. This allows us to provide various opportunities for patients affected with a neuromuscular condition.
