What is the ICGNMD?

The ICGNMD works for people with Neuromuscular Diseases (NMDs) and their families. 

  • Bring together experts from all over the world to collaborate in diganosis and research in NMDs

  • Train medical professionals who work with NMDs in genomic medicine, in their own countries 

  • Work to increase global access to genomic medicine, so more patients' care can be informed by genetic information

  • Build a diverse world-wide cohort of patients with NMDs and their families, and increase their access to clinical trials.

AIM 

  • Create a transcontinental genomics research and capacity building partnership between the UK and Official Development Assistance Lower and Middle Income Countries (ODA-LMICs) which include Brazil, India, South Africa, Turkey and Zambia
     

  • Discover new disease genes, understand comparative genetic architecture and explore disease mechanisms
     

  • Increase the number of patients with an accurate genetic diagnosis, build trial-ready cohorts, and ultimately improve health outcomes for patients with neuromuscular diseases drawn from a population of over 1.5 billion
