EURO-NMD provide educational webinars on a monthly basis to increase the knowledge around different specialist areas related to the neuromuscular field. Each webinar lasts approximately one hour with the opportunity for viewers to ask questions on the subject area.
The recordings and slides will be available on the EURO-NMD website for viewers to refer to or in case someone who has expressed an interest is unable to make the live webinar.
As part of a close working relationship between EURO-NMD and RD-Connect three informative webinars were organised for those researchers involved in ERNs. Recording of these three webinars can now be found below.
If you have a particular subject you would like to present about please contact Chloe Blewitt who will find a suitable date and time.

This video demonstrates how to use two tools that will help you quickly identify patient registries in Europe and beyond that hold data on your disease of interest. They also let you find rare disease biobanks and browse their sample collections, with detailed information about each individual sample.

This video will demonstrate how to use the powerful and user-friendly analysis tools in the GPAP to interpret, filter and prioritise your variants to identify disease-causing mutations and help diagnose your rare disease patients. The system also allows you to compare your data with data submitted by other members of the RD-Connect community, and further afield, to find confirmatory cases for your candidate variants.
