This is the published report from the work funded by the donations received by the Friends of FSH Research. I am thrilled that this work has been published and may stimulate new interest & activity in the field of FSH research. I hope this work will open new doors which may one day lead to the development of a treatment for FSH Muscular Dystrophy.

Thanks to our many generous donors!!

Thank you to the dedicated work of Stephen Tapscott, Daniel Miller and the other scientists involved in this study. (Lauren Snider, Amy Asawachaicharn, Ashlee E. Tyler, Linda N. Geng, Lisa M.
