Electrophysiologist / Neurobiologist

The successful candidate will work on a project to examine the role of endogenous progenitor population or a project to examine cognitive and memory dysfunction in therapy-induced remyelination, using a combination of cell fate mapping, electrophysiology, immunohistochemistry, and behavioral analysis in 2 different mouse models of multiple sclerosis . Our research goals are to understand neurodegeneration and characterize the ability of therapeutic drugs to repair and restore axon function.

The Power of Treating Patients as Partners in MS Clinical Research

As a medium, the internet neither helps nor harms in multiple sclerosis care - what matters is how clinicians and patients engage in that medium, according to Paul Wicks, PhD, vice president of Innovation at PatientsLikeMe. His company is a Patient Powered Research Network, which are becoming increasingly common, he explained during his session at the 2014 ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Joint Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.

Making Treatment Decisions When There Is an Abundance of Options

Despite the benefit of having more choices than ever before to treat patients with multiple sclerosis , the abundance of options has led to more complexity, according to speakers at the 2014 ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Joint Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. In the 1980s just 1 option had been available, but there are currently 12 that patients and providers need to choose between when creating a treatment plan for individuals with MS.

Heterogeneity of MS Makes New Disease Biomarker Discovery Difficult

The treatment landscape for multiple sclerosis continues to get more complex month to month, which makes biomarker discovery increasingly important for treating the disease, according to Suhayl Dhib-Jalbut, MD, professor at the Rutgers University Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. There are many significant reasons why biomarker discovery in MS is crucial, including early diagnosis, assessing disease activity, and predicting treatment response and treatment complications, Dhib-Jalbut said during his talk "Biomarkers of Treatment Response to MS Disease Therapies," at the 2014 Joint ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts from September 10-13.

Gray matter myelin loss strongly related to MS disability

People with multiple sclerosis lose myelin in the gray matter of their brains and the loss is closely correlated with the severity of the disease, according to a new magnetic resonance imaging study. Researchers said the findings could have important applications in clinical trials and treatment monitoring.

Early Cleveland Clinic trial of stem cells for multiple sclerosis shows promise

An early clinical trial testing the use of a patient's own stem cells to treat, or even reverse, multiple sclerosis has shown some positive results, Cleveland Clinic researchers reported this week. The Phase 1 trial , unique in the United States, tested the safety and feasibility of treating MS patients with a dose of their own adult mesenchymal stem cells , or MSCs.
