Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the leading cause of chronic neurological disability in the adult population, and the combination of biological and environment factors intertwine to make each clinical case one of a kind. This program brings together a panel of experts from different sectors – neurologists and research scientists specializing in MS and companies and organizations focused on collecting patient data, developing cutting edge diagnostics, and accelerating drug development. Our panelists will share a unique perspective regarding issues affecting women with MS, challenges in clinical trials, and innovative ideas to improve patients' quality of life. Join us in learning more about this disease and the local life science community’s efforts to identify a cure.
