Muscle wasting and weakness are devastating problems in patients with muscular dystrophies, cancer, cachexia, critical illness myopathy, and in aging people. New findings and treatment approaches are becoming increasingly important. The International Research Training Group for Myology – MyoGrad is the first structured PhD training in muscle sciences worldwide. Highly qualified international PhD students complete a bi-nationally supervised thesis in the field of muscle-related cell and molecular biology or clinical aspects of muscle diseases.
