At the Neuromuscular Research Center, we participate in planning and carrying out research that may benefit patients that we typically see.  We also do our best to stay informed about the research that other  organizations are conducting so that we can provide our patients with as many treatment options as possible.


We currently have studies enrolling or soon to be enrolling for the following diseases and/or complications of these diseases.  Please call the research coordinator at 480-314-1007 ext 6 for more information.
