The Future Of Multiple Sclerosis Is Here! $8.4-Million Funding Granted To Top Scientists To Work On MS Cure
As efforts to eradicate the mysterious emergence of Multiple Sclerosis continuously pours, the debilitating auto-immune disease has once again been put to the spotlight after it has been granted an $8.4-million boost in Saskatoon. Dr. Michael Levin, a newly recruited researcher from the the College of Medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center has revealed that the money will be used to create a chair in MS clinical research at the University of Saskatchewan. It was found that Dr. Levin was also the Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Center and Laboratory of Viral and Demyelinating Diseases, in Memphis.
$8.4-Million Funding Granted To Top Scientists
In one of his statements reported by CBC News, the newly recruited researcher claimed that this is allegedly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for him and his team since the study would be able to induce his most creative state ever. Additionally, he said that he's also set to come up with a series of risky experiments, or what he so-called as high-risk experiments, that might actually give us the answer. Surveys conducted show that nearly 3,500 to 3,700 people suffer from it in Saskatchewan, and perhaps considered to be the highest rate in Canada. It was found that Levin and his team have been given this amount in order to identify causes of MS and develop new or improved treatments.
The Future Of Multiple Sclerosis Research
Meanwhile, according to reports revealed by Global News, Dr. Levin and his team plans to study the relationship between viruses, auto-antibodies and acquired DNA mutations. He continues to explain that a number of studies have already looked at inherited mutations, however, he has also highly emphasized that what they're interested in is to study the abnormal DNA mutations in people's bodies that they acquire over a lifetime. Furthermore, Levin will allegedly collaborate with the MS Neuroscience Research Center and clinic at Saskatoon City Hospital. Consequently, the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation was also able to raise $5.6 million over the past six years to contribute to the research chair. Ultimately, Erin Kuan, president of the MS Society of Canada - Saskatchewan has revealed that they aren't near the finish line, but this is definitely a big jump across the start line.
