Muscles2Meet is a biennial symposium for all PhD students working on neuromuscular diseases in the Netherlands, to get to know each other and the research field. Muscles2Meet is an initiative of the Prinses Beatrix Spierfonds, in collaboration with Spierziekten Centrum Nederland. The program is made by an organization committee of PhD students. The next edition will take place in 2022 instead of 2021, due to the corona pandemic.
