Why I chose MS research

My name is Frances. I’m 24 years old and I recently started my PhD at Queen’s University Belfast.

After taking biology classes at university, I found I enjoyed working in a lab and loved the idea of helping people through medical research.

Behind the scenes at the MS Society Tissue Bank

I joined the Research Network in 2008 shortly after leaving my job in research. I had just had a big relapse and couldn’t work in the lab anymore. The Research Network gave me another chance to use my skills.

We’ve been funding the MS Tissue Bank since it was set up in 1998. We caught up with research nurse, Ville Pitkaaho, to find out what it’s all about and what really goes on behind closed doors.

My MS, my needs, our future - Why I filled in the survey

I was diagnosed with MS in 2003. Since then I have had some horrendous care (or rather non-care) from healthcare professionals. 

I have also had some fantastic care where I have been listened to and treated as a person rather than as a patient. They see how MS affects everything I do and have done all they can to help me to live my life as fully as possible.
