Hear from two amazing Interns

As an individual with Duchenne, I have been an active member of the Action Duchenne community for many years. Having just finished my second year studying Neuroscience at the University of Nottingham, I wanted to find work experience with Action Duchenne during my summer.

During my time at Action Duchenne I have been writing content for the release of their new website, focusing on giving an overview on Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Other content that I have written for the website includes describing the genetics and inheritance of Duchenne, the signs and symptoms of Duchenne and the clinical trial process. Due to my background in science I was in an ideal position to write about these various areas for the website.

I have enjoyed working at the charity, getting to know the team at Action Duchenne and how they operate, working to find a cure for Duchenne and improve the lives of those with the condition.

This internship was ideal for me as I wish to pursue a career in science communication, opening my eyes to one aspect of this field of work. I hope to continue to work with Action Duchenne in the future and look forward to the release of the new website.

As a recent Biomedical Science graduate from King’s College London, I was keen to get involved with Action Duchenne over the summer. My background in genetics spurred my interest in the new exciting research developments happening right now for Duchenne. I have been gathering together information for the research basics section for the launch of the new website to explain to families the new therapies and technical terms often used when talking about muscular dystrophy. This highlighted to me the multimodal pathways which contribute to Duchenne, and how all these factors should not be considered in isolation. With so many exciting projects happening now, I think we can be optimistic about the future for Duchenne.
