Kay Davies has dedicated her life to the cure of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which is one of the most common, fatal genetic disorders diagnosed in children. She contributed to the
design of the pre-natal tests used around the world. Her team isolated a key gene sequence for the potential treatment of the disease, and she’s now leading clinical trials for the development of a cure. Learn about this scientific journey, and engage in a
conversation with one of the most remarkable Oxford scientists.
