Leading Research Center for Multiple Sclerosis Takes Name of Benefactors

NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of the Multiple Sclerosis Research Center of New York (MSRCNY) today announced  the re-naming of the institution as the Tisch MS Research Center of New York.  Representing a new model of healthcare, the research center, coupled with its clinical affiliate, the International Multiple Sclerosis Management Practice (IMSMP), is the largest MS facility in the world with over 80,000 square feet at its Manhattan location and serves patients from over 45 countries and five continents.

The close relationship of the non-profit research center and the clinical practice (IMSMP) helps to test new treatments for MS and easily moves research discoveries from bench side to bedside.  The Tisch MS Research Center of New York aims to identify the trigger, optimize the treatment and repair the damage caused by multiple sclerosis.
