Since MSRI’s inception, Dr. Greenstein has completed the renovation of the MSRI laboratory and has made significant progress in identifying the cause of MS as well as developing a potential treatment. MSRI needs your help to take Dr. Greenstein’s research to the next level. Please consider purchasing an engraved tile to be placed in the MSRI Laboratory. The tile may honor a loved one, friend or the many lives affected by this disabling disease. Help MSRI FIND the cause, STOP the progression, and CURE MS.

As we approach the end of the year I would like to thank you for your ongoing support. This has enabled usto continue work at full speed in the laboratory.
Anita Warner discusses her experiences with MS, the challenges of living with the disease, and her hope for the future.
The immune system has an inherent contradiction in the way it functions – the major role of the immune system is to fight off the invasion of our bodies by bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites; but in order to accomplish this, immune cells need to recognize our own tissues so that they can determine what is foreign when we have an infection.

Proteostasis, which includes the repair and disposal of misfolded proteins, depends, in part, on the activity of heat shock proteins (HSPs), a well-known class of chaperone molecules. When this process fails, abnormally folded proteins may accumulate in cells, tissues, and blood. These species are a hallmark of protein aggregation diseases, but also amass during aging, often in the absence of an identified clinical disorder.
Bob Froehlich discusses his experiences with his MS diagnosis, living with MS, and impacts on his work and hobbies.
