People affected by multiple sclerosis hold the key to understanding the condition, says Catherine Lubetzki, and she hopes her work could one day stop MS in its tracks
As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
I didn’t know. I just knew I wanted to work with people.
Explain what you do in one easy paragraph.
I divide my time between working with patients and coordinating research. Multiple sclerosis occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the fatty myelin coating around nerve fibres. Our research tries to figure out how we can repair this protective coating. We also want to understand how MS progresses.
