Dear Blog Reader

The aim of this Blog is for the Barts and The London Neuroimmunology Group to update you on the latest research in MS with an emphasis on the research we are involved in. 

A major reason for maintain the Blog is to thank the funders of our research. Funders encourage us to engage with the general public, people with MS and their families and other people with an interest in MS.  We believe you have the right to know what we are spending your research money on! The purpose of our work is to improve our knowledge and understanding of MS with the goal of improving the lives of people living with this disease.

For us as a group of MS researchers the blog allows us to reflect on our work, assess its potential impact and plan for the future. For some of our research projects we need your help; this may be as a volunteer for a particular study or simply helping us to spread the word.  A major benefit of the blog is that it encourages reflection and team work and provides us with an opportunity to celebrate our successes.

I am very proud to lead the Neuroimmunology Group at Barts and The London and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their achievements and commitment and perseverance towards our ultimate goal: a world free of MS.

If you have any ideas or comments on how we can improve the blog please don’t hesitate to contact us; the best way to do this is via email: g.giovannoni (at) qmul.ac.uk.

Please register as a follower and stay abreast of the latest MS-related research.

With best wishes
