The 3rd Neuromuscular Translational Summer School took place online from 6 to 10 December, 2021. The aim was to understand how to facilitate the clinical development of therapies for NMDs. The objectives of this Summer School were:
– To educate clinicians and researchers working in the NMD field on aspects relevant for translational therapy development
– To outline and showcase how networks like EURO-NMD and TREAT-NMD facilitate therapy development
This 3rd Neuromuscular Translational Summer School was a success despite the fact that it had to be reorganized online and the participants gave us very positive feedback. The 15 participants came from 12 different countries. It was a lively Summer School with lots of interaction between faculty and participants. This Summer school was held by excellent speakers presenting on a wide spectrum of pertinent topics.
Here are some feedbacks from participants who were glad to share them with us:
« Thank you for the very well organized summer school. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot! ! » Esther Schrama – Netherlands

After the Summer School we decided to launch an online satisfaction survey based on 3 main criteria:
