Activities have focused on new therapy development for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, epidemiology of Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy and establishing research networks with peadiatric hospitals across Canada to monitor paediatric neuromuscular disease and gain a better understanding of Cerebral Palsy.  Other research includes clinical and molecular studies of neuro-genetic and neurometabolic disorders, studies using population databases on epidemiology and natural history of childhood epilepsy, quality of life in children with epilepsy and traumatic brain injury outcome.
