A Future without MS

The mission of the Tisch MS Research Center of New York is to conduct cutting-edge research to find the cause of and cure for MS and develop effective treatments for patients. Tisch MSRCNY focuses on translational research, bringing findings quickly from the laboratory into clinical application to treat symptoms of MS and to halt or reverse damage caused by the disease.

The Tisch MS Research Center of New York (Tisch MSRCNY) is an independent, non-profit research center dedicated to finding the cause of and cure for multiple sclerosis (MS). The Center focuses on patient-based research, bringing findings rapidly from the laboratory into clinical application to treat symptoms of MS and to halt or reverse damage caused by the disease.

 

For over twenty years, Saud A. Sadiq, MD, FAAN, an internationally acknowledged expert in MS, has believed that combining innovative research with clinical care excellence targeted at discovering new, effective therapies and finding the cure for MS represents a new model of healthcare. In 2006, he established the largest independent MS center in the world comprised of the non-profit Multiple Sclerosis Research Center of New York (MSRCNY) and its clinical counterpart, the International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice (IMSMP) that expanded in 2012 to include the MS Imaging Center. The unity of purpose and ease of communication between the three entities create a unique environment that accelerates the pace of scientific breakthroughs while delivering unparalleled care to patients.

It was in recognition of Dr. Sadiq’s vision and achievements in MS research that the Tisch family renamed the Center in February 2013, formally creating the Tisch MS Research Center of New York (Tisch MSRCNY).

The aims of Tisch MSRCNY are to:
- Develop repair strategies to reverse disability
- Optimize treatment strategies
- Understand the pathological mechanisms of progressive disease
- Identify the trigger of the autoimmune phenomenon (the cause of the disease)
- Foster an academic program of learning, education and scientific
