“The junior faculty award has helped launch the careers of several bright young physician scientists who frequently collaborate with others in the group. The Race to Erase MS has been instrumental in supporting the Johns Hopkins MS Center’s effort to both understand the basic mechanisms underlying progressive MS and to develop new and better therapies for the disease.”

“For years the Race to Erase MS foundation has fostered collaborative efforts and supported many research projects between the participating centers. Equally important, in my opinion, is the support from the foundation to actually trained and retained a new generation of young MS experts, thus preparing the future of MS research that will lead to a cure.”
