Professor Jacob Sosnoff and IHSI invite you to an upcoming conference that will showcase the breadth and quality of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) research on the Illinois campus. The Illinois Multiple Sclerosis Research Day will be held Tuesday, April 16, 2019, at the I Hotel and Conference Center in Champaign, IL. It will serve as the first public announcement of the Illinois MS Research Collaborative (detailed below).
The conference will engage researchers, faculty, and students from various units; campus leaders; persons living with MS; local clinicians; pharmaceutical representatives; and other external collaborators in the varied offerings of the day (lighting talks, student research posters, MS research participant panel, etc.). Dr. Kathy Zackowski, Senior Director of Patient Management, Care, and Rehabilitation Research at the National MS Society, will present about the society’s research priorities and future direction of MS research. This is a great opportunity to understand how to shape our collective research at Illinois and maximize our impact.
This exciting event is jointly sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute, College of Applied Health Sciences, and Department of Kinesiology & Community Health at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Please make plans to attend as we increase visibility and explore new opportunities for Multiple Sclerosis research.
