Dr. Jonah Chan's Groundbreaking MS Research

Yesterday, neuroscientist and National MS Society fellow, Jonah Chan, PhD, became the first recipient of a new international prize launched to recognize innovation and progress in multiple sclerosis research. His unique research into brain repair in MS has the potential to transform the treatment of MS. 

Among the accomplishments for which he was recognized, Dr. Chan invented new nanofiber and micropillar technologies to rapidly identify compounds that stimulate the regrowth of the myelin nerve casing, which is damaged in MS. He is now testing thousands of compounds, including some FDA approved therapies, to explore agents that may promote remyelination and repair in MS - a strategy that could shave years off the development of important new treatments.

Meet Dr. Chan and learn about what drives him to push MS research further:
