On Wednesday, September 7, 2016, Solid Biosciences joined the Jett Foundation and other members of the local Cambridge, MA community to observe World Duchenne Awareness Day.
The event convened many of those impacted by the disease - patients, families, industry, researchers, healthcare providers and local policy representatives - to show unity in finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy and demonstrate that innovation takes unfailing drive and commitment. It also celebrated Cambridge as a center of innovation in Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
With the great city of Boston as a backdrop, the group came together and raised red lanterns along the Charles River, honoring those with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and celebrating hope for the future.
