Volunteers with MS currently being treated at St. Vincent’s University Hospital, Tallaght Hospital, Cork University Hospital or Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry are invited to participate in the study which aims to identify these factors in order to find better treatments, diagnoses and, ultimately, a cure for MS. GMI also hopes to rollout additional study sites around the country in future.
