The conference aims to highlight the latest MS research that is providing a better understanding of the mechanisms of disease and new treatments and will explore how research can be translated in to programs and policy.

This event will bring together researchers, trainees, and other key MS stakeholders to exchange knowledge and will feature scientific lectures, multi-stakeholder panel discussions, scientific poster sessions, trainee workshop, and networking opportunities. The conference is focused on four key themes: advance treatment and care, understand and halt disease progression, enhance well-being and prevent MS.
