We're all Joining Jacks fight against Duchenne Musculare Dystrophy, are you?

Our Funds 2012-2019

Where our funds go?

We have listed in the table below a list of the grants we have awarded to date. We have colour coded the grants to show how we are supporting the whole therapeutic development pipeline. 

Joining Jack is committed to ensuring that as much as possible of our funds goes to developing research into a treatment or a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We are particularly focused on transitional research, research that takes potential therapeutics out of laboratories and into clinical trials.

Working closely with our partner charity Duchenne UK, our trusted team of scientific advisors, patient advisory board and trustees we have made major decisions on how to spend the funds that we have raised. The grants that we have awarded have led to breakthroughs that are changing the therapeutic landscape for the Duchenne community.
