MDC welcomes Daria Wojtal as Director of Research!
|We are pleased to announce that Daria Wojtal has joined Muscular Dystrophy Canada as the new Director of Research. Daria comes to us from the Hospital for Sick Children and the University of Toronto, where she worked under the leadership of Dr. Ronald Cohn on her PhD in developing CRISPR gene editing technology for the treatment of neuromuscular disorders.
Daria is also a long-time volunteer for Muscular Dystrophy Canada as a Planning Committee Member where she acted as a liaison between MDC and a team of scientists from SickKids who run scientific activities during the Walk for Muscular Dystrophy in Toronto.
Muscular Dystrophy Canada is excited about the work that Daria will be focusing on and the level of neuromuscular research knowledge she brings to the organization. She will be building out new programming to increase Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s investment and impact in research in Canada and internally through strategic partnerships.
Please join us in welcoming Daria Wojtal to the Muscular Dystrophy Canada family!
