Over 10,000 people are affected by neuromuscular disorders (NMDs) in the Ottawa region. Many of these disorders require a high level of expertise and the latest medical technology to diagnose. There are hundreds of different NMDs that are becoming more clinically apparent through improvements in diagnostic testing. Although treatment options for NMDs have been limited in the past, advances in genetic sequencing and personalized medicines have created new opportunities for clinical trials and improved patient outcomes.
Here at our nation's capital, we have a one-of-a-kind facility lead by clinicians and scientists in the neuromuscular field in a world-class clinical research centre.
We have a dedicated centre with over 5000 sq ft for clinical care, diagnostics, and research, including innovative labs, clinical investigation units, examination, and treatment rooms.
