We are studying how cells in the brain can repair myelin and how we can make this process more efficient. We are also exploring limiting nerve damage by targeting chronic inflammation inside the brain.
Provide patients with a more accurate diagnosis and prognosis using specialized blood tests, magnetic resonance imaging, retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT), and genetic testing, leading to personalized care plans and ultimately to more effective treatment options for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).
Develop new diagnostic and treatment options for MS.
Multiple Sclerosis Research
The research aims that will inform how to revolutionize care for our patients include:
In addition to advanced techniques to catch the earliest signs of MS and measure treatment effectiveness using advanced imaging tools, wearable technologies and blood biomarkers, we continue our study of genes and biological pathways that predict MS outcomes and define MS subtypes.
We are studying the importance of diet, exercise, mood, and lifestyle.
Multiple Sclerosis Research at Johns Hopkins
Hear from Dr. Peter Calabresi, co-director of the Johns Hopkins Precision Medicine Center of Excellence for Multiple Sclerosis, on what research is being done to develop new diagnostic and treatment options for MS.
Patient Care for Multiple Sclerosis
The research we do directly impacts the treatment options available to our patients. Find out more about patient care for Multiple Sclerosis.
