Duchenne Intensive

PPMD recognizes and appreciates the growth of our partner companies and has identified the need to provide comprehensive education about the current landscape of Duchenne for those joining the field. To that end, we have developed the Duchenne Intensive, a focused meeting designed for field staff, MSLs, and other employees of industry or biotechnology companies actively engaged in therapy development for Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy. This full-day Intensive will precede the Annual Summit and provide an overview of the basics of Duchenne, review current standards of care, ethics in medical care, active clinical trials and ongoing research as well as current learnings around access and reimbursement.

  • Date: January 21, 2020

  • Cost for Industry Partners: $400
  • Cost for PPMD Innovation, Inspiration and Care Partners: $300
