DuchenneConnect was recently awarded close to $1 million dollars in funding from PCORI, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute!
DuchenneConnect will be one of 29 members of PCORnet, the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network. The goal of PCORnet is to create a large, highly representative, national network for conducting clinical research. This is especially exciting because we hope to ask and answer important questions about Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies using the huge, connected network.
Our goals for DuchenneConnect during this project include:
A fundamental part of PCORnet is involving patients and families in decisions about the governance and use of the data. The aim is to shift health research from researcher-driven to patient-centered research. We want ideas from YOU so we can make the most of this program for our community.
