About MS Frontiers

Our MS Frontiers conference is the UK's biggest biennial conference for MS research professionals.

By bringing scientists, clinicians and health care professionals together to network and share the latest advances in MS research we're accelerating the progress being made to stop MS.

The conference also aims to support the next generation of MS researchers by giving them a chance to present their work and hear from world experts.
