CureDuchenne Biobank – Phoenix, AZ
We are pleased to announce that the CureDuchenne Biobank is scheduled to collect samples in Phoenix, AZ.
We have partnered with RUCDR Infinite Biologics and Dr. Tahseen Mozaffar from UC Irvine, to create the CureDuchenne Biobank which will collect minimally invasive blood and skin tissue samples from patients and their siblings that will be banked and made openly accessible for research. These high quality, standardized samples will help provide researchers access to data to accelerate the work necessary to find a cure for every child with Duchenne. Without these quality samples taken, it is difficult to conduct research for scientists at academic institutions, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
We hope to ensure that all patients, regardless of mutation, have their own cell lines available to test potential mutation-specific therapies.
