The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has recently committed $15.8 million to support 45 new MS research projects as part of its $40 million international investment this year alone to spur momentum in cutting-edge MS research. More than $499,000 of these funds are allocated for Dr. Simon Gregory of Duke University. This financial commitment is the latest in the Society's relentless research effort to prevent, treat and cure MS.
Dr. Gregory is an assistant professor in the division of Medical Genetics, Department of Medicine at Duke University. His primary research revolves around the detection of genes involved in multiple sclerosis. With his research on "Defining the functional role of a novel MS susceptibility gene," he is able to further advance efforts to find a cure for MS. He joins a team of over 350 investigators in the U.S. and abroad supported by the Society who share the goal of achieving a world free of MS.
