2020 MS Research Webinar Series

August 20, 2020 | Education, Research

We’re really excited to hear the latest in MS Research via the NZ MS Research Trust’s new webinar series. Replacing their Research Day in Auckland, this series of online webinars means we can hear the latest, from the experts, from the comfort of our couches.

Over three Saturdays in September & October, the Research Trust, in association with the Liggins Institute, is connecting us with some of the latest research in the field of MS both here and overseas.

Highlights include Dr Wallace Brownlee, dialling in from London to update us on HSCT treatments for MS, and Justin O’Sullivan speaking to the latest local research on genetics. Also Dr Ernie Willoughby updating us on COVID and MS, and Dr Jennifer Massey and Dr Richard Doocey on aHCST.

Registration is free but tickets are limited so don’t delay.

If you can’t make any of the dates, if you pre-register you will be sent a recording of the webinar to watch at a more convenient time. Full details on how to access the seminars will be provided on registration.
