Prioritizing gene therapy to help families, including her own

When Courtney Young was a senior in high school, her 15 year old cousin was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). This diagnosis provided her with a strong motivation to pursue a future in science, which ultimately led to her interest in muscle biology and associated diseases. Since then, her interest has never faltered and she is now the CEO of gene therapy startup company MyoGene Bio, which focuses on the development of cutting edge genetic therapies for muscle diseases. For Courtney, this initiative continues to be personal, with the hope of someday being able to help her cousin who suffers from DMD, the most common form of muscular dystrophy.
