Dr James Dowling of Sick Kids, Toronto, Canada has been a recipient of grants from the Myotubular Trust in both 2014 and 2015 to research a potential treatment for myotubular myopathy. Dr Dowling has been working on proving the effect of reducing levels of the phosphoinositide called PI(3)P on reducing the symptoms of myotubular myopathy. Results to date are very encouraging and this was work published in the high impact journal, JCI The Journal of Clinical Investigations, in August 2016.
