Comprised of leading global MS scientists and experts, including three people affected by MS, the Scientific Steering Committee sets priorities and develops plans to accelerate treatment development.

It achieves results by funding transformational research, convening scientific summits to share knowledge and stimulate discovery and collaborating with regulatory bodies, scientific leaders in other diseases and pharmaceutical experts.
