Originally posted 2016/06/16

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, Rajiv and Yodit were fortunate enough to be selected to attend the 2016 MS summer school event held at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver! The theme for the summer school this year was “The Evolving Art and Science of MS Care” which covered the topics such as epidemiology, viruses in MS, MRI, the clinical side of MS, and general information about MS.

   Yodit and Rajiv in Vancouver. You can tell by how green it is.

In addition to the MS summer school, Rajiv was selected to be a part of the 2016-2017 SPRINT team which guarantees that he will be a part of the 2017 MS summer school! As part of the SPRINT program, Rajiv will be working in a team of SPRINTers along with Dr. Ghasemlou from Queens University to work on an interdisciplinary project. Congratulations Rajiv!
