If you know someone who has multiple sclerosis, you want to know why MS sometimes progresses quickly and severely to a stage requiring 24-hour care.
To find answers, researchers at the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC) have created the CASA-MS Study.
We are grateful to The Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases for its generous $100,000 challenge grant which stimulated more than $100,000 in seed money for this study. This was accomplished, in great part, by the people in the windows of CASA-MS below!
These gifts and others provided $500,000 for the first part of this study which included design and collection of preliminary data, enrollment of the subjects, examinations, blood tests, cognitive tests, imaging, and analysis of the preliminary findings.
We invite you to make a gift to support the next stage of the research which includes additional more extensive testing and analysis.
