2015 endMS Summer School in Montreal, Quebec

2015 endMS Summer School

A huge thank you goes out to the Quebec-Ottawa endMS Regional Research and Training Centre for hosting the 2015 endMS Summer School in Montreal from May 11-15, 2015. This year’s theme was “The Biology of Attack and Repair in Multiple Sclerosis” and brought together 43 trainees from across Canada. This interactive educational program aims to enhance the knowledge and skills in MS research and allows trainees from a variety of disciplines to come together to learn about various MS-relevant research topics. This year’s program facilitated networking, collaboration and information exchange. The trainees benefitted from hands-on laboratory sessions providing practical experience with techniques relevant to MS research in the fields of immunology, molecular biology and histology. Plenary sessions included the following subjects: pathology, imaging, ethics and clinical trials as well as clinical aspects of MS from both the neurologist and patient perspectives and career development sessions.
