Young Scientist Summit in Clinical Neuroimmunology
Spring 2023

ACTRIMS Young Scientist Summit LogoA core value of ACTRIMS is to mentor, educate and foster the careers of students, neurology residents, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty who are interested in MS-related research and/or clinical practice. 

The purpose of this Summit is to educate young investigators who do not have clinical training and are engaged in multiple sclerosis-related research about MS diagnostic criteria, clinical subtypes, epidemiology, neuropathology, and treatment. The long-term goal is to forge bridges between the bench and bedside that will help junior PhD investigators formulate research questions and projects and to seek collaborations with their physician colleagues, that are more likely to lead to translational advancements in MS. Attendees of this exclusive program are selected from a pool of nominees from leaders in the ACTRIMS community. 

This program is a great opportunity for scientists to both better understand how their research impacts patients with MS and become informed about current approaches in the diagnosis and treatment of MS, as well as network and receive one-on-one career advice.
