2016 Helen Walker Research Grant Awarded
Posted on: January 05, 2017
The seventh annual AMDA Research Grant (the 2016 Helen Walker Research Grant) was awarded to Dr. Frédéric Lofaso with the Hôpital Raymond Poincaré in France for his Project: “Acid Maltase Deficiency Myopathy Follow-Up.”
The aim of this project is to improve the quality of the clinical follow-up by adding to the tests usually performed once a year, robust innovative noninvasive and mainly non-volitional outcome measures based on diaphragmatic function, motor function tests and skeletal muscle integrity.
Congratulations Dr. Lofaso!
