About Kurt + Peter

Kurt and Peter lead active lives like other kids their age. Unlike most kids, however, their muscles are deteriorating. Kurt and Peter have a severe form of limb girdle muscular dystrophy (called “LGMD2C”).

The Kurt+Peter Foundation raises funds to apply current science to potential therapies for LGMD2C.

Foundation Mission
The Kurt+Peter Foundation was created to apply available scientific techniques to treat or cure LGMD2C. The foundation funds “translational research” to take science from the lab to produce drugs that will treat LGMD2C. The Kurt+Peter Foundation works with top tier research institutions and biotechnology companies.

Current Research

The Kurt+Peter Foundation funds research focused on getting treatments to LGMD2C patients. Currently, the foundation is pursuing two primary programs, exon skipping and gene therapy, which have shown promise for LGMD2C and other forms of muscular dystrophy. The Kurt+Peter Foundation is also interested in, and considering, other therapies that may assist LGMD2C patients, including avenues for building muscle, reducing fibrosis, and improving the quality of life.
