World Muscle Society Congress 2017

World Muscle Society Congress 2017

August 15 - 18, 2017
Palais du Grand Large, Saint Malo, France

Meet with Flagship at the 22nd International Annual Congress of the World Muscle Society to discover how we help drug developers define their path to success. Our computational Tissue Analysis (cTA™) approach provides the quantitative, contextual data needed to make confident clinical trials decisions. We partner with drug developers to implement tissue-based biomarker strategies and drive efficient and effective clinical trials.

Look for the three scientific posters featuring Flagship’s work at this important conference. Reach out to a member of our team to discuss your needs in clinical trial decision support in muscle-based disease areas.

Poster Presentations

Flagship Scientist, Dr. Crystal Faelan, will be presenting a poster at WMS. Come to the poster sessions to learn about the development and analytical validation of a cTA™ approach to evaluate muscle samples.

Two other posters will be presented by representatives of Summit and Sarepta Therapeutics detailing collaborative clinical trial developments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

About the 22nd International Annual Congress of the World Muscle Society

This is the premier annual congress on neuromuscular disorders, attended by established and young physicians, researchers, therapists and neuropathologists from all over the world. The symposium will be held in the traditional format with 3 selected topics.

  1. Excitation-contraction coupling: basic aspects and related disorders
  2. Extra-muscular manifestations in NMD
  3. Advances in the treatment of neuromuscular disorders
Contributions will also be welcome on new advances across the neuromuscular field.
