Erase MS

The Centers

The Race to Erase MS Center Without Walls (CWW) program has succeeded tremendously as a result of it’s constant exchange of information and collaboration. Several new and exciting scientific achievements in the past year have continued to fuel the Center Without Walls program and it’s commitment to find a cure for multiple sclerosis.

Scientific meetings provide an open forum for discussion and presentation of novel ideas and findings. Centers with specific expertise provide valuable support to others, with each having a unique background.

This constant exchange process is nurturing outstandingly rich research activity. During these meetings, thirty plus key investigators share their latest research progress, and guest speakers are often invited to share their on-going work with the CWW. The specific scientific accomplishments of individual Centers are featured as highlights in our annual Newsletter.
