About Our Program

The Neuroimmunology and MS Center is affiliated with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Our fellows receive intensive clinical training in the following areas:
1) Differential diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) and related disorders

2) Prophylactic agents for relapsing-remitting MS 

3) Treatment of progressive or aggressive MS, including the use of chemotherapeutic agents and monoclonal antibodies 

4) Interpretation of MRI and other imaging techniques of relevance to MS 

5) Symptomatic treatments for management of pain, spasticity, fatigue, bowel- or bladder- dysfunction 

6) Rehabilitation of chronic neurologic illness.

Fellows also have the opportunity to receive additional clinical training in subspecialties of particular relevance to Multiple Sclerosis, such as

  • neuro-ophthalmology
  • neurological rehabilitation
  • rheumatology.

A major focus of the fellowship is the design and implementation of clinical trials. The neuroimmunology fellow participates in a number of multi-center clinical trials as well as our own investigator-initiated clinical studies. 

In addition to clinical training and direct research experience, fellows will take graduate classes in basic immunology, epidemiology or clinical trial design.
