The Johns Hopkins Multiple Sclerosis Center is the recipient of one of 22 research grants offered to find solutions for Progressive MS
The Johns Hopkins Multiple Sclerosis Center is the recipient of one of 22 research grants offered to investigators in nine countries by the International Progressive MS Alliance, a worldwide collaborative focused on finding solutions to progressive forms of multiple sclerosis (MS).
The recipients of the grants in the first round of such funding are to be announced Thursday at a meeting of MS scientists in Boston. Accepting the award for Johns Hopkins will be Peter Calabresi, M.D., director of the Multiple Sclerosis Center.
The funding launches an ambitious program that will invest nearly $30 million over the next five years in finding treatments and solutions for progressive MS. It also will forge international collaborative research networks, which will leverage research already underway and stimulate new research through the alliance’s significant funding programs. For this initial short-term offering, 195 research proposals were received from 22 countries.
