On Wednesday 27 September 2017, the newly refurbished paediatric area in the Clinical Research Facility at Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary was officially opened by Professor Mark Walker and Dr Michela Guglieri.

The refurbishment was possible thanks to the generous donations from Duchenne Research Fund, Duchenne UK and Joining Jack and provides dedicated space for paediatric clinical trials within the facility.

The opening was attended by several local Duchenne families who supported the development of the space.
