Multiple Sclerosis Research

Research is a central part of our mission at NYU Langone’s Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center. We are dedicated to advancing the understanding and treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), with the goal of one day finding a cure.

Our center participates in studies focused on relapsing–remitting, primary progressive, and secondary progressive MS and related disorders such as neuromyelitis optica (NMO).

Our research program is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with MS. Our actively recruiting studies include trials for new disease-modifying medications, approaches to detect changes in cognitive and motor functioning earlier in the disease (including from home), and innovative approaches to manage MS and improve its symptoms. We are also studying immune responses to vaccines in patients on different MS drugs, and how to use MRI to better understand how MS affects the brain. Our research program also includes the use of noninvasive brain stimulation using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).

Our research program is directed by Leigh E. Charvet, PhD. If you are interested in participating in one of our studies, please call 646-501-7511 or email
