The Multiple Sclerosis Research Institute (MSRI), a non-profit foundation founded by Dr. Jeffrey I. Greenstein, brings real hope and help to those affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) through:
- Conducting basic laboratory research into the cause and development of MS.
- Developing translational research — moving from the laboratory to clinical applications — to foster new and innovative treatments.
- Providing MS education for the public including patients, caregivers, health care professionals, and MS specialists.
The MSRI is well-positioned to focus sharply on research and education in MS, unencumbered by the multiple academic or commercial demands of either universities or industrial enterprises. The flexibility of this stand-alone foundation allows for rapid change to adapt to the needs of the field.
