Professor Jacob Sosnoff, Director of the Motor Control Research Lab (MCRL), and the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute (IHSI) invite you to attend an upcoming conference that will showcase the breadth and quality of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) research on the Illinois campus. The Illinois Multiple Sclerosis Research Day will be held Tuesday, April 16, 2019, at the I Hotel. It will serve as the first public announcement of the Illinois MS Research Collaborative.

The conference will engage researchers, faculty, and students from various units; campus leaders; persons living with MS; local clinicians; pharmaceutical representatives; and other external collaborators. The conference will feature various opportunities for engagement including lightning talks, student research posters, MS research participant panel, and more. Dr. Kathy Zackowski, Senior Director of Patient Management, Care, and Rehabilitation Research at the National MS Society, will present about the Society’s research priorities and future direction of MS research. This is a great opportunity to understand how to shape our collective research at Illinois and maximize our impact.

You can register here for both the conference and an opportunity to present a poster at the event.
