Biography

Dr. Maggie Walter is an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich. She was trained as a neurologist at the LMU Munich, and is working at the Friedrich-Baur-Institute, the neuromuscular department of the LMU, in a leading position. She graduated with a Master's degree in management of social and health institutions and has an additional qualification in Nutritional Medicine (DAEM/DGEM).

Dr. Walter's main research interests are neuromuscular diseases, mainly muscular dystrophies (e.g. Duchenne and LGMD), myofibrillar myopathies, inflammatory myopathies, spinal muscular atrophy, CMT neuropathies and clinical trials in neuromuscular patients. She is the coordinator of the German Muscular Dystrophy Network (MD-NET), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) since 2003, co-coordinator of the German Charcot-Marie-Tooth Neuropathy Network (CMT-NET), funded by the BMBF since 2016, and a member of TREAT-NMD, a European Network of Excellence in the 6th EU frame program for translational research in neuromuscular diseases.

Since 1997, Dr. Walter has been a member of the Scientific board of the German Muscular Dystrophy Association (DGM) and an ad hoc reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals. She is responsible for the German patient registries, the DMD, SMA, CMT, FSHD, PAM and IBM patient registries, and together with Volker Straub for the international FKRP registry.
