2020 Webinar Series
The NZ MS Research Trust is delighted to present our new webinar series: online and nationally available. We know that research makes a real difference to the outcomes for people with MS, and the Trust is committed to not only funding the research, but also updating our community on the latest developments. While the current climate makes the much-anticipated MS Research Day impossible, our new webinar series brings this research direct to your home.
Highlights include Dr Wallace Brownlee, dialling in from London to update us on HSCT treatments for MS, and Dr Justin O’Sullivan speaking to the latest local research on genetics. Also, Dr Ernie Willoughby updating us on COVID and MS, and Dr Jennifer Massey and Dr Richard Doocey on aHCST.
Our Webinar Series, kindly hosted by the Liggins Institute, University of Auckland, will present a selection of the latest research in the field of MS both here and overseas.
Online & easily accessible
Grab a coffee & head to your couch…. In response to requests to run our seminar series nationally, and also to ensure we are reaching as many of the people in our MS community, we have moved our Research Day online and spread out over September and October to make for easier bite sized viewing. Access is open to all, via a webinar registration link. Simply click on the link below to pre-register and we will send you the Zoom details.
