Decode Duchenne Announces 500th Patient Application


We are pleased to announce the 500th patient application to the Decode Duchenne program! Decode Duchenne provides free genetic testing, interpretation, and counseling to eligible Duchenne and Becker patients who are unable to access testing due to financial barriers. Read the full press release here.

Decode Duchenne is a program of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and is coordinated by the DuchenneConnect registry team, which includes three board-certified genetic counselors. Learn more about Decode Duchenne, including how you or your loved one can participate.
