Solid Honors Rare Disease Day 2018

Solid Biosciences is proud to join the global rare disease community again this year to observe Rare Disease Day, which takes place annually on February 28th. Rare Disease Day seeks to raise awareness of the current challenges faced by patients living with rare diseases. The campaign is spearheaded by the European Organisation for Rare Diseases (EURORDIS) and is observed globally.

As a company solely focused on Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), Solid was honored to host several families with DMD, who shared their personal stories of living with this rare disease and educated our employees about DMD. It is their courage and drive that continue to inspire us in our important work every day.
