Just a few weeks ago, life sciences company Abata Therapeutics came out of stealth mode, unveiling a $95 million dollar investment in a novel cell therapy to treat progressive MS.
Joining me to talk about this potentially transformational treatment for progressive MS are the President and CEO of Abata Therapeutics, Samantha Singer, and Dr. Richard Ransohoff, one of the company's co-founders as well as its Chief Medical Officer.
We'll also give you a sneak peek at a study that measured the impact of COVID-19 on people with MS in New York City.
We'll tell you about a study that examined the viability of at-home Tysabri infusions.
We'll share the details of the Can Do MS virtual programs that are happening all month long.
And we'll let you know how you can attend Dawnia Baynes's celebration for the entire MS community (did we mention that it's taking place in a very cool virtual world?!!!).
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
