MS Research Roundup: An Introduction
Starting this week, MSDF collects news and comment of interest to MS researchers from around the web
Let's be honest: MS Discovery Forum can’t cover every important development in MS research. MSDF can, however, curate the most useful news on MS research from around the Web. Today, we're adding a news stream with this curated content. We're calling it MS Research Roundup.
The idea is to provide you with fresh material every time you visit. This news roundup will not merely be a list of naked links. Instead, it will include commentary representing the observations of MSDF’s seasoned journalists, led by Carol Cruzan Morton, our senior science journalist.
MS Research Roundup may also have lighter moments and even contain a guilty pleasure or two—things outside the normal scope of coverage but relevant to the MS research community and perfect for a lab break. Even celebrities with MS can influence the research agenda, such as when the husband of the late Annette Funicello gave a Canadian magazine's camera crew access to "his bed-ridden wife in the hope the publicity would generate more interest in the CCSVI research that he thought would save her life."
Our curated news feed supports the central mission of MSDF: It’s designed for researchers around the globe, helping you stay abreast of key findings and issues in multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating disorders, and helping to build bridges among different disciplines with the goal of opening new routes toward significant clinical advances.
