MS Researchers—
The Faces Behind the Science

The National MS Society invests over $30 million annually on more than 300 MS research investigations throughout the United States and abroad. This investment is paying off in significant advancements toward finding treatments and in better diagnosis, rehabilitation and symptomatic therapy for people with all forms of MS.

The faces behind this success are Society-funded investigators: experienced researchers, young scientists and doctors, scientists from allied fields. These men and women come from different backgrounds, but their goal is the same: To help end the devastating effects of MS.

Here is a small sample of the faces behind MS research.
