Genetic Variation and Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of the brain and spine which affects about 2.5 million people worldwide. It often strikes individuals between 20 and 40 years of age, and is the most common cause of neurological disability in young adults. MS is partly inherited, and in the past 10 years a wealth of studies has provided significant insight into the genetics of MS. In this talk Dr Jessica Davies will discuss the progression in our understanding of MS genetics.
