Latest Issue of the Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases Now Available – July 2021

The Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases (JND) has announced the publication of a new issue of the journal!  


Volume 8, Issue 4 of the JND contains a record number 30 items comprised of  research articles, meeting reports and reviews, many of them open access, and is now available online.


The JND is dedicated to providing an open forum for original research in basic science, translational and clinical research that will improve our fundamental understanding and lead to effective treatments of neuromuscular diseases. The lab’s own Dr. Hanns Lochmüller is the joint editor-in-chief of the JND alongside Dr. Carsten Bönnemann, with Lochmüller Lab member Dr. Emily O’Connor also involved as the journal’s joint social media editor alongside former PhD student Dr. Grace McMacken.


This issue of the JND follows the special open-access issue devoted to the Treatabolome, an initiative designed to shorten diagnosis-to-treatment time for patients with rare diseases, featuring a systematic review on metabolic myopathies from lab member Alex Manta, with Sally Spendiff, Hanns Lochmüller, and Rachel Thompson as co-authors. The lab reported on some highlights from this issue on our website last month.
