Research and Clinical Opportunities


UMass has a vibrant and supportive research community that will directly benefit the Neuroimmunology Fellow training within the MS Center of Excellence. Besides providing comprehensive care for MS patients UMass participates in multiple clinical trials from phase 1-4, investigator-initiated studies and translational/ bench collaborations with other research labs at UMASS, other MS Centers, both nationally and internationally, to drive the development of new therapies, discovery and validation of biomarkers of the disease activity, prognosis and therapeutic response. The fellow will be mentored to develop an investigator-initiated research study, supported by the mentor to execute the study and publish the data, as well as fellows will be asked to participate in our ongoing clinical trials as EDSS raters or treating physician. The available resources at the UMass MS Center will allow the fellows to investigate varied aspects of multiple sclerosis and add to the growing research in the field.
