What do you think has been the most exciting development in MS research?
There have been so many exciting developments it is hard to pick just one and there are so many discoveries in neuroscience as a whole that greatly benefit the field of MS. Broadly, I would say the development of new preclinical models such as the discovery of brain organoids was simply amazing. Within the field of MS specifically, I think the progress we have made in understanding the repair mechanisms of the brain has been so crucial. It’s important to understand how MS occurs and how we may prevent it, but for 1000s of people with MS, the development of new treatments targeted at preventing disease progression is paramount. This research has real potential to lead to the development of new therapeutics that promote remyelination and functional repair, which would be game changing for the treatment of people with MS.
