2016 Program Overview
Emerging basic science and clinical breakthroughs in MS and NMO are transforming patient care. Clinicians caring for this patient population need a strong understanding of latest treatments, diagnostic criteria and exciting developments. This live educational program offers a comprehensive overview of the integration of science in MS and NMO into clinical practice.

The 2016 endMS Summer School objectives were to:

• Unravel molecular aetiology and pathophysiology to assist in the development of novel targets and biomarkers for therapeutic interventions.
• Understand how advances in imaging are being applied for improved diagnosis, management and treatment assessment.
• Utilise population health data and appropriate epidemiological methods to guide clinical decision making.
• Unite peers across multiple disciplines and encourage networking and collaboration.
