Our Center Without Walls (CWW) program has provided support that has permitted the medical community to link together multidisciplinary scientific programs and expertise across the country to advance the understanding of the cause of MS and to develop new treatments. The Center is a break-through success because of the vision, insight and flexibility of these extraordinary doctors. The Center’s theme is simple; communication – doctors working together toward a mutual goal. When this goal is reached, all will share in the victory. The Center’s network of the top MS institutions that have established leading, innovative research programs presently include UCSF, UCLA, Harvard, Yale, USC, Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins and Oregon Health Sciences University.
Semi-annual scientific symposiums provide an open forum for discussion and presentation of ground-breaking ideas and research data. 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 group. The specific scientific accomplishments of individual Centers are featured as highlights in our annual Newsletter.
