I am happy to announce that the newest issue of MS Research is now available online. MS Research provides donors who fund research with engaging news and stories about research in multiple sclerosis. Through MS Research, donors with a vested interest in research gain insight into the process, personalities and progress of MS research happening today. MS Research also provides the general public with the latest news and events in research and treatment that is happening around the world, thanks to generous contributions from those who are passionate about our cause.
In this issue, we highlight some exciting first steps the MS Society of Canada has taken to accelerate the pace of research in MS through our collaboration with the Centre for Drug Research and Development (CDRD). This pivotal connection lays the groundwork for translating research breakthroughs into treatment strategies for people with MS with a bench-to-bedside approach. We also explore the next frontier in progressive MS research with an introduction to remyelination – the process by which the damaged insulation around nerve fibres is repaired – with an emphasis on innovative, MS Society-funded research in this emerging field. Finally, we profile a rising star in MS research, Dr. Craig Moore from Memorial University, who leveraged his experience in the endMS Research and Training Network to build collaborations with world leaders in research into the role of B cells in MS.
