ECTRIMS – Paris 2017
Recent findings on our work to explore the relevance of two neuroprotective factors to disease onset and progression in MS were presented at the ECTRIMS meeting in October in Paris. Poster and platform presentations from researchers all over the world covered every aspect of MS research that could be considered. The UBC MS Research group as a whole was very well represented with over 30 presentations on topics ranging from genetics to epidemiology, neuroprotection, clinical studies, pathology and immunology. It was a tremendous opportunity to see the latest advances in MS research from basic to clinical studies, and to see where our own research fits in! Heather Yong and Maria-Elizabeth Baeva both presented their work.
