MS Education Day

The 2018 MS Education Day will take place on June 6, 2018 from 8:00 AM - 1:00PM. 

RSVP required for breakfast and lunch. Please email info@albertamsnetwork.ca.

Alberta MS Network Seminar: Presented by Dr. Anastassia Voronova, University of Alberta - "The role of interneurons in oligodendrocyte development and implications for white matter regeneration”

Annual Scientific Forum

The scientific forum brings together MS researchers and trainees from the Universities of Alberta, Calgary & Lethbridge as well as physicians from the community and the MS clinics in Edmonton, Calgary & Red Deer. The relatively small size of this MS‐dedicated group makes it the perfect venue to exchange knowledge and ideas, and to foster networking and collaborations. 


NEXT FORUM: The 2018 Alberta MS Network Scientific Forum will be held on November 23 and 24. We are delighted to announce our fantastic line-up of keynote speakers: Dr. Douglas Arnold, McGil University; Dr. Jennifer Gommerman, University of Toronto; Dr. Mikael Simons, Institute of Neuronal Cell Biology (TUM-NCB) Technical University Munich; and Dr. Alan Thompson, University College London.

Seminar Series

The Alberta MS Network has monthly 1-hour seminars on a broad spectrum of MS-related topics in which the Alberta institutions are linked via videoconference. Presentations are given by visiting guest speakers, or local researchers and trainees. These seminars are an opportunity to get involved in dynamic discussion on all areas of MS research.

All times are from 12:00 - 12:50 p.m. unless otherwise specified.
