    3. Testing a novel treatment for cognitive impairment in MS by first testing it in an animal model of MS (i.e. EAE).

    4. Developing a bioassay to predict responses in the use of High Dose Cyclophosphamide, which has shown unprecedented results in restoring function and stopping disease activity in pilot studies in MS.
