An innovation in multiple sclerosis research has been launched by the iConquerMS initiative - a longitudinal, prospective study called “REAL MS“ (aka Research Engagement About Life with Multiple Sclerosis). The goal of the study is to accelerate research into personalized treatments for people with MS.

iConquerMS is a community of 3,000 people affected by MS who have participated in research studies. It is designed to empower anyone living with MS to participate in research. Read more about iConquerMS

The REAL MS study works by collecting repeat observations of the same variables, over long periods of time, from people with MS divided into groups called 'cohorts' who share MS characteristics. People who agree to take part answer questions about their particular experiences, so that differences across populations can be identified, and about factors affecting their MS progression and treatment outcomes.
