This is the 9th and 4th event in the annual series on Neuromuscular Diseases and Neuromuscular Pathology being planned. The program has been developed and tailored based on areas of new disease-related information identified by the Planning Committee with further input from the faculty panel and recent advances in the literature relating to neuromuscular diseases. As an example, recent successful trials have led to FDA approval of new drugs for the treatment of Myasthenia Gravis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
