Faster Cures Spotlights the National MS Society as an Innovator In Medical Research
April 2, 2015
FasterCures established The Research Acceleration and Innovation Network (TRAIN) to create opportunities for medical research innovators to discuss and tackle the challenges that cut across diseases. It is a group of unique nonprofit foundations that fund medical research across a spectrum of diseases. They represent organizations that are the engine behind innovation in disease research - collaborative, mission-driven, strategic in their allocation of resources, and results-oriented. To highlight the entrepreneurial spirit of TRAIN participating organizations, TRAIN publishes an Innovator Spotlight column which features outstanding organizational work in driving medical research. In the April spotlight, Bruce Bebo, executive vice president of research, discusses how the National MS Society has been a catalyst for most major advancements in MS research for the past 66 years, including laying the groundwork for all the current FDA approved disease-modifying therapies.
