Salary dependent on qualifications and experience

Founded in 2001, Action Duchenne was the first UK charity dedicated to improving the lives of those living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Our vision is that people living with Duchenne live the longer, fuller lives they deserve.

The UK DMD Registry was developed by Action Duchenne in 2007 and acts as a database for all those living with Duchenne or Becker Muscular Dystrophy.  Patient registration is an online process that is voluntary and confidential.  The Registry collects information including genetic diagnosis, some clinical function information and interventions.

We are looking for an analytical individual with a sound knowledge of genetics to support the DMD Registry Curator and to lead on the Registry’s future development and planning.  To ensure the collection and analysis of data is accurate, efficient and to implement improvements to future-proof the Registry.  It is an exciting time for Duchenne translational research as there are around 40 clinical trials taking place now with new trials planned across the UK.  It is a great opportunity for the successful candidate to be at the centre and forefront of these developments and to ensure the DMD Registry continues to be a bespoke database used by patients, clinicians, geneticists and researchers alike.
