Parent Project organizes every year an International Conference entirely dedicated to Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy. This is an event of fundamental importance for the entire DMD/BMD community which to date hosts more than 700 participants from all over the world.
The conference is a key moment for getting an update on the latest developments in scientific research and to address some major issues of daily life. It is also an opportunity for meetings, exchange and socializing between patients, families, clinicians, researchers and the whole heterogeneous DMD/BMD community.
The 18th International Parent Project Conference will be held this year on February 17-21, 2021. The conference claim will be “Alone we imagine the future, together we grow”, with the subtitle “Many research paths towards one direction”, to underline the key dynamics of convergence and interrelation between the many actors that make up the Duchenne community today: patients, family members, researchers, clinicians, companies, volunteers.
Last year’s edition had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak; this year the event will be back, although based on a web platform. The structure of the event was reworked in order to allow a wide participation, while giving space to an even richer and more varied programme.
