The Institute is presently engaged in several major research projects examining different aspects of nerve and muscle disease.
Each project has a set mission, timetable and budget allocation, and it is anticipated that the outcome of each project will advance the aims of the Institute from both a research and clinical perspective.
The current projects cover the following areas:
- identifying new forms of muscular dystrophy;
- unlocking the mystery of inherited congenital myopathies;
- developing better teaching and learning strategies to assist children with Neurofibromatosis to reach their potential;
- determining the cause of a fatal neuropathy of infants, and;
- delivering new therapies to children with neuromuscular disorders.
In conducting this research, the Institute calls upon and contributes to a network of Australian and International collaborators to enhance the effectiveness of each project.
