Towards a muscle foundation…

A future Foundation serving a major discipline: myology

In less than 30 years, Myology has grown from a fledgling science to a burgeoning discipline. The multiplication of research avenues and advances has propelled muscle to the rank of innovation model for scientific and medical research.

The study of myology benefits the greatest number of people: it advances knowledge concerning both diseased and healthy muscle, injured muscle, athletic muscle and ageing muscle.

Now recognized as a discipline in its own right within the international scientific research community, thanks notably to the Institute of Myology’s expertise, Myology must now provide additional resources essential for the continuation of its development.

The future Muscle Foundation-Institute of Myology aims to accompany this new decisive phase to its highest level while giving France a new opportunity to strengthen its leadership in the promising field of innovative biotherapies.
