2019 endMS Summer School

The 2019 endMS Summer School, 3 Ps of MS: Pain, Protection, and rePair, will be held from May 26-29, 2019 in Alberta at the University of Calgary.

The Alberta MS Network is excited to host the 2019 endMS Summer School in Calgary and will strive to showcase Alberta’s diverse MS research expertise. This educational program will integrate innovative cutting edge basic and clinical research with a focus on fundamental knowledge and laboratory research, as well as translational activities that bring innovations to those living with MS. We hope to guide you from bench to bedside and back through the exploration of topics related to neuropathic Pain, neuroProtection and rePair. Sessions will emphasize work that is needed to examine these more complicated targets of MS research, and also address disease progression.

Over the course of the summer school, trainees with diverse backgrounds will have ample networking opportunities to build connections between peers and guest speakers. Participants will experience a balanced program with exciting lectures, hands-on workshops, career development sessions and research engagement sessions.
