The 35th Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) will take place between 11 – 13 September 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden. ECTRIMS is the world’s largest annual international conference devoted to basic and clinical research in multiple sclerosis.
Together with the local organizing committee ECTRIMS have prepared a program that represents the many new developments in all areas of multiple sclerosis, including epidemiology, genetics, pathology, biomarkers, imaging, immunology and treatment.
This year ECTRIMS has chosen to give special attention to one of the major remaining unmet needs in MS: to fill the void of efficient treatment for progressive MS. For this to be achieved we need to improve our understanding in many aspects, including risk factors and mechanisms, imaging, biomarkers, study design, and novel treatment approaches.
The program will also offer Educational Sessions, Plenary Lectures, Free Communications selected from abstracts, as well as Hot Topic, Young Investigator and Poster Sessions in order to promote a vivid interaction between the congress participants. This year the congress partners again with the Annual Conference of Rehabilitation in MS (RIMS).
Again, the core program will begin on Wednesday morning and end on Friday evening.
As every year, the European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP) will be represented at the Congress with a booth. We’ll give you more information later about how to find us in Stockholm. Stay tuned!
