Innovative online community for researchers aims to advance scientific collaboration and research for MS.
The Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis (ACP) and the MassGeneral Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease (MIND) today announced the launch of the Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum (MSDF) ( http://www.msdiscovery.org/
), a new, interactive virtual community and information portal that connects and educates investigators who study MS and other demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system, including transverse myelitis, neuromyelitis optica, and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.
"Many important advances have been made in recent years toward bringing new therapies to people with MS, but we still have a long way to go before we can celebrate a cure for the disease," said Robert McBurney, president and chief executive officer of ACP. "The Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum will shorten that path by creating an open research environment that fosters the generation and exchange of novel ideas about the causes, mechanisms, and potential cures for MS. We anticipate that the site will catalyze connections across disciplines that help accelerate us toward a cure."... Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... w/pageid/7
