Rajiv goes to summer school

Every year the MS Society of Canada hosts a one week educational retreat for trainees in the field of MS research to learn about MS from a multidisciplinary perspective. This year, I was fortunate enough to attend the 2017 MS summer school event held at the Memorial University in Newfoundland! The theme for the summer school this year was “Moving MS Research Forward through Clinical and Biomedical Partnerships” which covered the topics such as Histology, Neurological exams, Gait analysis, The keys to collaboration and group work, and general information about MS.

In addition, as part of the endMS SPRINT program, I and my fellow SPRINTers gave a presentation on the "Contribution of circadian rhythms to psychosocial and physiological outcomes in Multiple Sclerosis". In the near future, a review publication summarizing this information will hopefully be published for your viewing so keep an eye out!
