MS Research Division

Our multiple sclerosis research group is engaged in numerous basic, clinical, epidemiological and translational studies. This is not a comprehensive list.

MS Genetics Lab - genetics and functional genomics

The Chan Lab - neuronal/glial interactions that control myelination

The Zamvil Lab - neuroimmunology

The Pleasure Lab - neurogenesis and oligodentritics biology

The Akassoglou Lab - axon immunobiology

The Baranzini Lab - systems biology and bioinformatics

The Bove Lab - new strategies and targets to promote neurological recovery, including through digital technologies and hormonal modulation

The Hollenbach Lab - Immunogenetics

The Wilson Lab - neuro-infectious diseases and neuroimmunology

MS Clinical Research
Patients who are evaluated at the MS Center are welcome to participate in clinical trials of experimental therapies or other studies that are designed to help us understand various aspects of the cause and natural history of MS. You will find information on this page for adult and pediatric MS clinical research studies.
