Launch of SMA Priority Setting Project

SMA Europe wants to give You a louder voice in research!

We are launching a project called the “SMA Priority Setting Partnership”, in collaboration with the James Lind Alliance, to identify the top 10 unanswered research questions that are a priority to people living with SMA, their carers and healthcare professionals.

We will soon launch a survey which will allow you to tell us what research would matter to you most. Keep a look out!
