This interview with Dr. Jeff Chamberlain on xconomy.com is a really informative read. He is a neuroscientist at the University of Washington in Seattle and has been doing research related to muscular dystrophy for over 20 years.
The interview covers a lot of ground, but it really lays out how much progress has been made and how much work there is left to do. He answers questions about the various therapies currently in trial, as well as the possible long term impact of the therapeutic approaches. It’s a fairly long interview, but I found it inspiring and extremely informative. These kids need our help, and one of the best ways that we can help is by donating to organizations like Charley’s Fund and Darius Goes West. Downloading the Live Inspired app for the iPhone gives you a daily reflection and inspiring image and also donates money to a charity working specifically to fund research at labs that are working on these revolutionary therapies. Please help.
