Episode 92: MS Research with Dr. Jeffrey Huang

Publication date: Jun 03, 2019

MS research scientist Dr. Jeffrey Huang is this year’s recipient of the Harry Weaver Neuroscience Scholar Award from the National MS Society. On this week’s podcast, we’re talking with Dr. Huang about his potentially groundbreaking research, and we’ll even ask him how one becomes an MS research scientist. We’re also talking about the lectures, presentations, and education sessions that took place last week at the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers Annual Meeting. We’ll explain why we don’t think that MS caregivers need more support resources — and we’ll tell you what we think they do need. We’ll tell you about a possible connection between stress, gut bacteria, and MS. We’ll explain how a research team determined that simvastatin (Zocor) may help people living with MS differently than it helps people lower their cholesterol. And you’ll hear about a new collaboration that may lead to better clinical trials. Our contest ended this past Friday, and this week, we’re announcing who will be joining me as my special guest on the 100th episode of RealTalk MS! We have a lot to talk about.
