This webinar features Alliance Collaborative Network Award recipient Dr. Francisco Quintana from Harvard University/Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Quintana is leading research to identify and evaluate drugs that protect the brain from damage in progressive MS.

As an innovator and leader, the Alliance is funding essential, first-of-its kind global research networks, engaging the best experts, such as Dr. Quintana, to lay the groundwork over the next 4 years for new treatments and clinical trials. Dr. Quintana’s research is highlighted as well as the other international research supported by the Alliance, which is aiming to reduce the time and cost of getting therapies ready for clinical trials.

With leadership from the National MS Society, the Alliance is transforming the MS landscape, in an unprecedented global collaboration of MS organizations, researchers, clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, and people living with progressive MS. The Alliance continues to raise the profile and underline the unmet need of progressive MS, rallying the global community to come together and find solutions.
