Led by Dr. Tim Vartanian of Weill Cornell Medical School, our lab focuses on discovering what causes Multiple Sclerosis and how to best treat it.
We work with patients, leading researchers, students, and donors to:
- To better understand what environmental factors trigger the onset of Multiple Sclerosis in genetically susceptible individuals.
- To understand the factors and biology leading to new lesion formation in MS.
- To prevent injury to and promote regeneration of myelin in people with MS.
