Maurice Swanson, Ph.D., Professor of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at University of Florida, Gainesville, and a team of researchers have found that the muscleblind-like 2 (MBNL2) protein in the central nervous system (CNS) may be responsible for the neurological impacts of myotonic dystrophy
MDF offers a professionally staffed Warmline for people living with myotonic dystrophy, their caregivers, medical professionals and others to ask questions, find support and guidance and, when appropriate, be connected to additional resources and services. Consider contacting the Warmline if you need information and guidance on DM-related questions, would like help identifying resources or would just like support and a sympathetic ear from someone who understands the world of myotonic dystrophy and what it is like to live with DM.
