Muscular Dystrophy Association

Muscular Dystrophy Association

Since 1950, we’ve spearheaded efforts to transform the lives of people with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases. We fund groundbreaking research for promising treatments and provide families with the highest quality care from the best doctors in the country.

At MDA, we take a big-picture perspective across the full spectrum of neuromuscular diseases to uncover breakthroughs that accelerate treatments and cures. The power in our research approach is that we can often apply learnings from one disease to achieve progress in others to bring urgently needed answers to our families.

Innovations In Science

Here are some of our current highlights:


MDA is the largest source of funding for neuromuscular disease research outside the federal government and has committed more than $1 billion in funding since its inception.


Research we have supported is directly linked to approved, life-changing therapies across multiple neuromuscular diseases.


Our MOVR platform is the first and only data hub that uniquely aggregates healthcare, genetic, and patient-reported data, transforming health outcomes and drug development in neuromuscular disease.
