The Myelin Repair Foundation (MRF) is changing the world of medical research, starting with developing a myelin repair therapeutic for multiple sclerosis faster than the status quo.

In order to drive its basic research and translate it into faster, more successful treatments for patients, the MRF has launched its Translational Medicine Platform (TMP). This platform is essential for developing a successful myelin repair treatment for MS, and will help revolutionize the entire world of medical research. The TMP ensures discoveries move rapidly out of the lab and into the hands of patients in need, instead of lost in a black hole of scientific research called the Valley of Death.

With your help we can continue to eliminate the Valley of Death to find a cure for MS and revolutionize the entire world of medical research. Help us make a difference and make a gift to the Myelin Repair Foundation today! www.myelinrepair.org

Calling them “our bodies’ own repair kits,” Susan Solomon advocates research using lab-grown stem cells. By growing individual pluripotent stem cell lines, her team creates testbeds that could accelerate research into curing diseases — and perhaps lead to individualized treatment, targeted not just to a particular disease but a particular person.
