Our understanding of multiple sclerosis and its impact on individuals, families and the community is increasing, but incidence of the disease is rising and at this stage there is no cure. Researchers at Menzies, with national and
international collaborators, are playing an important role in answering the questions on what influences the onset and progression of MS.

In this public talk for National Science Week, Menzies researchers will speak about the research they have under way and will look ahead to likely research directions in the next 10 years.
