In the summer 2012, Genthon in France, the University of Washington, Boston Children's Hospital and The Joshua Frase Foundation publicly released the collaborative effort of years of work on the advancements of Myotubular Myopathy. The synergistic work of the entities on the dog model, captured and engaged the investing of Venture Capital. This monumental advancement was the first of its kind ever in the neuromuscular space in a large animal model. Their work in gene therapy showed proof of concept with complete correction in a naturally occuring muscle disorder in the canine animal model forging the path for clinical trials.
