“Obviously I have a big goal in mind − a cure. But it’s not just for me. It’s for all the people I’ve ever met who are living with MS.”
Future undergraduate interns for Discovery MS are going to have some mighty big shoes to fill: Briana Landis came to the job with fifteen years of experience under her belt. Diagnosed with MS at age four, she was only eleven when she joined our principal investigator Dr. Simon Gregory and our founding supporter Mr. Herman Stone at the opening of the David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI). Now a rising Junior at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC, she returned to her old stomping grounds to intern for us for the summer. She’s been hard at work contributing to our genotyping project and helping us develop a new questionnaire for our study participants.
