More than 350 people gathered at CBS Studios on November 3, 2019, to attend the annual STARS (Science Technology and Research Support) fundraiser. Hosted by UCLA donor Marilyn Silva Lund and co-chaired by Barbara Miceli, the event benefits the Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at UCLA. Also in attendance were center co-directors Drs. M. Carrie Miceli and Stanley F. Nelson.
Broadway to the Rescue, volunteer Broadway stars who raise money for various causes, provided the entertainment, performing songs from various Broadway shows.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is one of the most common and devastating genetic diseases of childhood, causing progressive muscle degeneration and affecting approximately one-in-5,000 boys. The Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at UCLA leads the nation in clinical care, translational science and clinical trials focused on Duchenne. “We are thrilled to be able to direct resources in support of Duchenne muscular dystrophy research and patient care at UCLA,” said Silva Lund. Funds will help advance research, clinical care and treatments for Duchenne that can improve, and potentially extend, the lives of those afflicted.
