Queen Square Multiple Sclerosis Centre

The Centre unites all the research and care in multiple sclerosis (MS) at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology in University College London (UCL), and the UCLH National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, in central London. The Centre also links the wide variety of MS research across the different sites of UCL. Our activities are broad and range from Laboratory Research into the mechanisms causing MS and developing new avenues for therapy, through Clinical Research and also Clinical Trials on novel medicines, to Clinical Services for MS patients.

Virtual: Queen Square Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Course – A Clinical Update

Thursday 3rd November (10.15am-5pm) and Friday 4th November (9am-4pm) 2022, via Zoom webinar.

The Queen Square MS Centre Clinical Update Course will run on the 3rd and 4th of November 2022 as a virtual meeting. The course is designed to provide clinicians who are not necessarily specialists in MS management, or whose focus is on a particular aspect of care, with a broad and shared understanding of MS. Lectures will cover the underlying pathological processes in MS, its diagnosis (and the dilemmas this can pose) and management. With COVID-19 bringing to the fore concerns about infections and vaccinations, a new session will specifically cover this as it applies to people with MS. Further, with confidence increasing that for many people with MS they can safely have children with careful treatment planning, there will be a new session on pregnancy in MS.

Please see the course page for further information.
