Congratulations to Melissa Goddard, Jason Miklas, and Leo Wang, who are the recipients of the Wellstone IDPO Pilot and feasibility funding for yr 1.

Investigator Development and Patient Outreach Core
Principal Investigator: Stephen Tapscott, M.D., Ph.D.
Co-Investigator: Laurie Hassell - Regional Liason WWAMI
Researchers outside of Seattle
Request a talk

The broad and long-term goal of the IDPO Core is to provide a mentored research training program in basic research, clinical research, and ethics that will inspire and prepare talented new investigators to address the critical needs of individuals with muscular dystrophy, develop programs that engage researchers in the greater northwest in muscular dystrophy research, and increase awareness of muscular dystrophy and related research efforts by the public and patient communities.

The IDPO Core is working to provide a mentored research program for pre- and post-doctoral trainees pursuing pilot and feasibility studies in basic research, clinical research and ethics related to human muscular dystrophies. The core is supporting meetings and seminars with both outside speakers and internal speakers for the scientific MDCRC community and will also include outreach presentations to interested non-scientific audiences. Laurie Hassell, the WWAMI program operator in coordination with Seattle Wellstone IDPO, is promoting muscular dystrophy research communication across the five state Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (WWAMI) region among investigators, students and the patient communities.Toward this aim we haverecently created a series of videos highlighting UW muscular dystrophy research:
