Areas of Research
- Biological Aging, Genetic and Environmental factors in MS — studying factors that drive disease severity in multiple sclerosis and related diseases
- Biosensing in Neurology — leveraging modern technology and biosensors to enhance neurological assessments and measurements of disease progression
- Visual System in Neuroimmunological Disease — identifying precise relationships between structural damage and functional outcomes
Our research group has partnered with a range of neurology specialists in order to investigate the longitudinal neurological impacts of COVID-19. Our NeuCOVID study aims to track neurological symptom and disease developments and changes over a 10-year period through neuropsychological metrics and detailed interviews.
We are currently accepting new participants. If you have been diangosed with COVID-19 and have experienced neurological symptoms (headaches, brain fog, anosmia, etc.) and would like to participate in our study, contact Jacqui Shanley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clinical Trial Program
With a commitment to bring new therapies to our patients, we run a clinical trials program for MS and related diseases. Contact us directly for up-to-date information on enrolling studies.
Pediatric Research Program
Our Neuroimmunology Research Group has partnered with Rady Children's Hospital, where Dr. Jennifer Graves runs a pediatric MS neurology clinic, to investigate MS and related diseases in children.
- Dr. Tzzy-Ping Jung and Dr. Masaki Nakanishi at the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience
- Collaboration on the MSight Study and Mutli-Sensors
- Clinical applications of EEG/BCli (for information on how to participate in this study as a patient or a healthy control, please contact Annalise Miner)
