The Tisch MS Research Center's mission is to conduct medical research directed toward finding the cause and eventual cure of Multiple Sclerosis. The Center's medical research is designed to understand all aspects of MS, including research at the cellular and molecular levels, in order to treat and cure MS.
Our stem cell studies are the most exciting of all of our research projects. The Neural Cell Regeneration and Repair study is working to perfect a treatment using the patient's own adult stem cells to regenerate and repair nerve cells and help patients recover lost functions.
In other stem cell projects, we are studying the use of embryonic and umbilical cord blood stem cells as agents of nerve cell repair.
Tisch MS's other current innovative and unique studies include:
- Finding the Cause of MS
- Understanding the Mechanisms of Disease Progression
- Developing Repair Strategies in MS
- Conducting Translational Research
- Biomarker Research
