We’ve Updated Our Website!

We are excited to announce the launch of our newly updated website! Our team has been hard at work over the past few months, working to bring you a more visually appealing and user-friendly experience. We especially want to thank our trustee Carol Sun-Schuster for leading this project and working together with our volunteers Heather Bidwell and Josef Hejcman in making this happen. 

The changes are quite subtle. But, most importantly, we’ve added a new and improved Research section. This contains detailed information on the RECODE-DCM initiative and Myelopathy.org’s spin-out research program in Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy (DCM). The RECODE-DCM initiative was kickstarted back in 2019 by Co-Founders Dr Benjamin Davies and Dr Mark Kotter in partnership with AO Spine.

The group established a Research Toolkit that improves efficiency in DCM research, to stimulate a whole new generation of high-quality studies and translate newly acquired knowledge directly into the clinic. Want to know what’s in the research toolkit and why? You can find all the answers in our new Research section. 

Myelopathy.org’s research community is now hard at work resolving each research priority, and you can discover how to get involved! Whether you are a professional in the field or simply interested in learning more about DCM-related research, we invite you to explore this area of our website. Many thanks to Liz Roberts, our RECODE-DCM Project Manager, for coordinating and putting together the content. 

We’ve also made some tweaks to our homepage and our all-important BlogStore, and Donate buttons are now more prominently featured in orange at the top. 

We are proud to be one of the leading sources for DCM research, and we believe this website update is a critical step forward in our mission to help readers stay informed and make the most of the latest research findings. RECODE-DCM by Myelopathy.org provides a unique multidisciplinary think tank for the global myelopathy community. We unify lived experience and professional experience, for research with relevance.

We hope you enjoy exploring our new and improved website, and look forward to continuing to serve you as the best source of DCM information. As a small charity, we rely on donations and volunteers to keep this website going. Donate here so we can continue to bring you content that helps advance DCM awareness and research. Whether you give a little or a lot, your funding will make a big impact to not only this charity, but to those affected with DCM. Thank you.

If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Happy browsing! 

With very best wishes,
Helen Wood 
Chair of the Board of Trustees
