The management of MS in the future

My vision of the treatment and management of multiple sclerosis in the future. I personally think it is going to be disrupted by a 'black swan' event.

I was invited to give a keynote lecture to a group of MS neurologists last week. The following is an adaptation of the talk for MS-Selfie subscribers. In it I discuss the future of MS management. I would be interested to know if you think I am being too ambitious and whether or not you agree. The talk is quite scientific, but I have tried to make it understandable for people with no scientific background. Please feel free to ask questions if you don’t understand anything.


I have also uploaded a PowerPoint version of my slides that you can download and use yourself. Please feel free to hack the presentation.
