Repairing Myelin

Have you seen this site? The Myelin Repair Foundation's vision is: "To accelerate the rate of medical research in order to more rapidly bring treatments to people with diseases for which there are no effective treatments or cures."

The non-profit Myelin Repair Foundation has a goal of accelerating the science of research to licensing a drug in the market. They focus on collaboration, acceleration, and results and hope to have a myelin repair drug available by 2009. To do this they recommend a model different from the traditional research model. They have been asked to share the new model and are pleased to do so.

I learned about this site from a message from Patients Like Me. Check it out. I found it interesting.
