ENMC: a worldwide network

ENMC was started in 1992 as a European initiative but gradually the workshops included researchers and clinicians from all over the world. This empowers ENMC’s mission: to establish international collaboration of experts in the world, to facilitate the establishment of consortia and to foster basic research and treatment development for patients with a neuromuscular condition. In the map below all countries which had at least 1 representative in an ENMC workshop in the last 30 years, are colored in a shade of blue.

Over 75 countries are represented at ENMC workshops

Internationally, researchers and clinicians within the ENMC network collaborate together:

  • in clinical trials
  • in research validating the diagnostic markers for a specific neuromuscular condition
  • in uniforming treatment guidelines
  • in scientific publications
  • to uncover disease mechanisms
  • to translate basic research into treatment development
  • in coaching researchers in their mid-career
