Target demographics: multiple sclerosis patients, people interested in speeding up research and development of treatments for diseases

Programs:

The Myelin Repair Foundation (MRF) is the world’s largest research organization exclusively focused on developing the next generation of treatments for multiple sclerosis — myelin repair. Myelin repair is the only current research approach that has the potential to actually repair nerve damage and halt the progress of multiple sclerosis.

What sets us apart from other multiple sclerosis research organizations is our aggressive Accelerated Research Collaboration™ (ARC™) model. The model is organized around one principle — to get a safe and effective myelin repair treatment to patients as quickly as humanly possible. Today we are on track toward the first myelin repair phase one clinical trial by 2014.

Mission:
The Myelin Repair Foundation''s mission is to accelerate the discovery of myelin repair treatments to improve the lives of people suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS), and to establish the Accelerated Research Collaboration™ (ARC™) model as a new paradigm for medical research.

With its innovative model for medical research, its narrow focus, and its five-year timeline, the Myelin Repair Foundation is on track toward achieving its goal to license at least one myelin repair drug target by 2009.

MRF’s Accelerated Research Collaboration model — bringing best-business practices to the world of academic research — is cutting the time to drug discovery in as much as one-half.

This is an amazing non-profit organization--the epitome of how non-profits should be. 84% of the money that comes in goes to research (compared to the National MS Society's 15-20%). Also, their collaborative ARC model breaks down barriers in the drug development process, which I believe will help ... more »

Hello: I was diagnosed with MS on October 6, 2000. For the first couple of years I was everyone's guinea pig. No matter what was tried, I continued to get worse. I was truly a story of "diagnose and adios." Neither my doctors nor I knew what to do. I was scared. The only clinical trials I had read ... more »
