Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) research at Department of Neurology at Oslo University Hospital (OUH) aims to identify characteristics and susceptibility factors of MS, to contribute to a better understanding of the disease and development of better treatments. The MS research unit is a member of the Neuroscience Research Unit (NRU). Read about the MS research group in Norwegian on our University of Oslo website and check out our facebook page: MS-forskningsgruppen ved Oslo Universitetssykehus - UiO
