Release of the 82nd newsletter from the Institute

The teams of the Institute of Myology fully committed and organized despite the crisis


Regarding this second period in the health crisis we are going through and strengthened by the measures provided in the first period, our teams have been able to adapt and know how to work in an epidemic situation. Some of our staff have unfortunately been affected but outside of the scope of their work, indicating that our procedures protect both patients and professionals.

We still welcome patients for therapeutic care and clinical trials and our research teams are also continuing their activity even though it had to be slowed down due to the reduction of teams on the spot within our laboratories.

Nevertheless, we must not lose sight of our strategic objectives and we are doing our best to stay committed to our ongoing projects by joining forces and resources.


Regarding the Telethon which will be held in a few days, Laurence Tiennot-Herment, President of the AFM-Telethon, launches an emergency communication and underlines that this year, the festive activities of the Telethon, which represent 40% of the fundraising, are prevented by the health crisis and confinement.

In this unprecedented context, we must all join forces and unite around the Telethon. The spirit of the Telethon is the sharing, the solidarity, the generosity, values that we must strongly defend because the Telethon is a true highlight of our country that combines the strength and the fighting spirit of families, the talent of researchers and physicians and the commitment of volunteers. Together and united, we will face the challenges and make this Telethon the success it deserves to make research go on towards innovative therapies and save lives.
