How We Are Different
The IMSMP is the only clinical practice located steps down the hall from the largest MS research laboratory dedicated to finding the cause of and cure for multiple sclerosis, the Tisch MS Research Center of New York (Tisch MSRCNY). The seamless interaction between doctors and scientists at this state-of-the-art research facility is found no where else in the world. At the IMSMP, our MS specialists have the rare opportunity to bring bench research from the Tisch MS Research Center of New York to the bedside of patients at our clinical practice. We perform patient-based research that translates in to the lives of those we treat and care for every day.
Tisch MSRCNY is currently investigating many different aspects of MS treatment and neuro-immunology. The stem cell research being performed at Tisch MSRCNY is particularly exciting. Tisch MSRCNY is currently the only Center in the United States with FDA-approval for Phase II of a Stem Cell Clinical Trial for MS. Such close proximity to cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs provides hope to patients that we will continue to improve our MS treatments, repair the damage caused by MS and one day, offer a Future Without MS.
Tisch MSRCNY is currently preparing for construction on our 3rd floor stem cell laboratory, the largest stem cell facility dedicated to MS research!
