Happy (belated) New Year! Here’s what we’ve been up to recently
Carolina MS Researchers Forum The Carolinas MS Researchers Forum is a unique regional event that fosters collaborations in the MS research community. Simon presented work on oxysterols, cholesterol derivatives naturally made by our bodies. Oxysterols show some promise for mediating inflammation and promoting remyelination.
Plug for Our Peers Our colleagues at Duke DREAMS have also launched a new study. MS Mosaic‘s study uses an app for Apple devices. The app collects information on individual experiences of MS that benefits both researchers and the people using it.
