Today, remyelination holds real promise as a strategy for restoring lost function and slowing or even stopping MS progression.  This week, we're taking a deep dive into the current state of remyelination research. 

Joining me are Dr. Jeffrey Cohen, the Hazel Prior Hostetler Professor of Neurology at the Cleveland Clinic and the director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Mellen Center for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment and Research, and Dr. Ian Duncan, a neuroscientist, and Professor of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the recipient of the 2020 Dystel Prize for MS Research.   We're also talking about the publication of the Atlas of MS, the most extensive global MS prevalence study to date. And we're even including a copy of the published study as bonus content in the RealTalk MS app!   We're sharing an excellent explanation of comorbidities in MS by Dr. Ruth Ann Marrie. And we're sharing some news about Dr. Marrie, as well.   The European MS Platform's annual conference begins Thursday. This year, the theme is Understanding Progressive MS. We'll tell you how and where to register for this free virtual event. And we'll remind you where you can register for next week's virtual 2020 MS-CONNECT conference, hosted by the MS Society of Canada.   We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
