Making a difference

Billy Ellsworth (pictured with Emeritus Professor Byron Kakulas AO) completed his high school diploma in 2019 and is in college. This is extra special because Billy can still walk, due to a clinical drug trial in the USA, based on novel treatments created here in Western Australia.

This ground-breaking research led by Professors Steve Wilton and Sue Fletcher, has enabled kids like Billy with Duchenne muscular dystrophy to have hope for the future. Our dedicated researchers are committed to changing young lives, like that of Billy Ellsworth.
