The Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (CDMD) at UCLA is proud to announce the ninth annual Dealing for Duchenne event to be held on May 14, 2016, at the Legendary Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles.

This fun and inspiring evening attracts over 500 guests each year and will include a celebrity Texas Hold-em tournament, craps and black jack tables, live and silent auctions, and a gourmet dinner by Wolfgang Puck. This year we will honor Anne Wojcicki, CEO and Co-founder of 23andMe.

Anne Wojcicki
CEO and Co-Founder

Anne co-founded 23andMe in 2006 after a decade spent in healthcare investing, focused primarily on biotechnology companies. Her hope was to empower consumers with access to their own genetic information and to create a way to generate more personalized information so that commercial and academic researchers could better understand and develop new drugs and diagnostics. Presently, 23andMe has built one of the world’s largest databases of individual genetic information. Its novel, web-based research approach allows for the rapid recruitment of participants to many genome-wide association studies at once, reducing the time and money needed to make new discoveries, and the company has created a proven and standardized resource for finding new genetic association and confirming genetic loci discovered by others. Under Anne’s leadership 23andMe has made significant advances in bringing personalized medicine directly to the public. Anne graduated from Yale University with a BS in Biology.


This annual event helps to fund the Center for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at UCLA, the first comprehensive clinic and translational research center focused on Duchenne in the western United States.
