Bruin Allies for Duchenne

Bruin Allies for Duchenne Logo

This organization was founded by a group of students inspired by a class taught by Dr. Rachelle Crosbie-Watson on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is a genetic, progressive muscle wasting disease that affects young boys, about 1 in 3,500! Unfortunately, there is no cure for this disease and the life of these young boys is cut extremely short because of it. The purpose of our organization is to broaden public awareness at UCLA and to the general public about this disorder. We seek to support families affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by providing practical and informational resources, and finally we wish to eventually be able to fund research of promising therapies for the treatment of DMD through partner organizations.
