Our Mission

Tisch Multiple Sclerosis Research Center of New York is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to finding the cause and cure for MS. We conduct groundbreaking research to accelerate the pace at which research discoveries translate from lab bench to bedside. The Center's goal is to identify and understand disease mechanisms, optimize therapies, and repair the damage caused by MS. Our medical research is designed to understand all aspects of MS, including research at the cellular and molecular levels, in order to treat and cure the disease.


No treatment has shown reversal of established disability in MS until now.

- Saud A. Sadiq, MD, FAAN

Tisch MSRCNY is the only center with an FDA approved stem cell trial for MS in the United States.
