Date:9/22/2011

HACKENSACK, N.J., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), the largest non-profit organization in the United States focused on finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Duchenne), announced that it has awarded Tejvir S. Khurana, MD, PhD, Professor of Physiology at the University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Muscle Institute an End Duchenne Grant for $98,000.

Dr. Khurana is a molecular geneticist / physiologist and highly accomplished scientist who discovered the utrophin protein (originally named Dystrophin-related protein). This bridge funding will allow Dr. Khurana the resources to continue work to upregulate utrophin and correct the underlying defect in mdx muscle with the objective of translation to the clinic.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy occurs when the dystrophin protein is missing or not functioning. Utrophin is a kind of molecular cousin to dystrophin that can compensate for the lack of dystrophin when it is present in larger than normal quantities.

The End Duchenne Grant Award Program was created by PPMD in partnership with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in an effort to ensure continuation of promising Duchenne research and translation to human studies. The End Duchenne Grant Award Program is a bridge grant provided by PPMD to selected research projects that receive scores beyond the current funding paylines of the N
