Laura D’Annunzio

After her younger brother, Alejandro, passed away from Duchenne in 2006, Laura decided to choose a career path that would allow her to help individuals and families affected by Duchenne. Following her studies, she returned to her hometown Buenos Aires, to the hospital where Alejandro was initially diagnosed, to start her career. Laura worked in various roles both within the hospital and beyond supporting patients with rare diseases including the Argentinian Muscular Dystrophy Association. Since joining PTC Therapeutics in 2017, Laura has been successful in developing assistance programs and helping patients access proper care.
