About ARMS

Advancing Research in MS (ARMS)  was formed in 2013 by a diverse group of individuals whose lives have been significantly shaped by multiple sclerosis (MS).  With backgrounds in medical research, education, healthcare, social work,  and in most cases, living with MS, the Founding Board members identified a need to enrich the focus of MS research by integrating the perspectives of people living with MS.  


ARMS seeks to bring the perspectives of people with MS (PwMS) into the process of identifying MS research needs and their priorities as well as the research AIMs

 and study protocols.
