MS Frontiers

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

MS Frontiers is a key part of our strategy to accelerate progress to stopping MS. At this conference, we bring together scientists, clinicians and health care professionals to network and share the latest advances in MS research. 

We also give the next generation of MS researchers a platform to present their work and hear from world experts.
