Indiana University Centers
IU School of Medicine is also recognized a Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Care Center. As one of more than 150 top health care institutions across the United States, IU joins other MDA Care Centers as they treat thousands of patients each year who are living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and other neuromuscular disorders. Department faculty regularly conduct research on treatment options for neuromuscular disorders, specifically myasthenia gravis and Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.
Faculty are also involved in multiple clinical trials, which include studies on ALS and myasthenia gravis. Neurology residents rotate with neuromuscular disorders physicians in the IU Health hospital system, and the department trains fellows in clinical neurophysiology, a one-year fellowship focusing on EMG and neuromuscular disorders.
