Welcome to Part 2 of a special two-part RealTalk MS series highlighting conversations with past recipients of the Barancik Prize for Innovation in MS Research.
The Barancik Prize is awarded at the annual meeting of the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis, a meeting better known as the ACTRIMS Forum. Several past Barancik Prize winners gathered at the 2023 ACTRIMS Forum to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Barancik Prize, and I took that opportunity to chat with this remarkable group of MS research all-stars.
Part 2 of Barancik Prize Conversations features the 2018, 2020, and 2022 Barancik Prize winners.
Dr. Katerina Akassolgou, of the Gladstone Institute of Neurological Disease, was awarded the Barancik Prize in 2018 for her work understanding the role of fibrin-related nerve damage in MS and designing potential therapies to prevent neurodegeneration.
Dr. Dwight Bergles, of Johns Hopkins University, received the Barancik Prize in 2020 in recognition of his pioneering research in understanding the brain cells involved in myelin repair.
Dr. Ruth Ann Marrie, of the University of Manitoba, is the 2022 recipient of the Barancik Prize in recognition of her groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
