Description of Study/Trial: 
We are seeking patients to participate in a study to test for genes related to disease progression in MS.  This is a NON-medication study and requires only one visit.  Study participants will complete an MRI (without contrast), a blood-draw for genetic testing, a neurological exam, and brief questionnaires. 
The total time to complete this study visit is approximately 3 hours.  Our study will provide modest reimbursement to ensure that participation comes at no cost to you.
