While most of us are working remotely, we would like to acknowledge and thank the small Wave team that continues to work on site during this challenging and unprecedented time. We extend this gratitude to all those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all #inittogether.

Last week we gathered with colleagues and friends from the Boston life sciences community to watch selections from the #RareDiseaseFilmFestival and hear about the power of storytelling to build connections in #RareDisease. Thank you to the families who shared their stories through these films - we are humbled to be a part of the rare disease community and are working every day to advance the science of genetically defined diseases like #Duchenne and #Huntingtonsdisease. And, thank you to Takeda for hosting!
