IMSVISUAL symposium at ACTRIMS 2018 in San Diego

It is our pleasure to invite you to our IMSVISUAL symposium at ACTRIMS (being held in San Diego, California, February 1 – 3), to discuss updates on vision research in multiple sclerosis and related disorders. For the second consecutive year we are fortunate to have secured ACTRIMS as our sponsor.

The symposium, integrated into the ACTRIMS program and CME accredited, will take place on Friday February 2nd from 7am – 8.15am. Please see below the confirmed agenda for talks/speakers during the session. This symposium/session is open to all attendees of the ACTRIMS 2018 forum.

I think this will be an exciting symposium with presentations from
several groups representing existing IMSVISUAL member sites from
around the world.

In addition to the IMSVISUAL symposium, there will also be a separate IMSVISUAL consortium board meeting. This will take place Thursday, February 1st from 10.45am – 12pm. Space for the board meeting is limited to 35 participants so we kindly ask that you register using the link below only if you plan to attend. There should be ample time for discussion and establishing future collaborations during the meeting. Light snacks will also be provided.

We look forward to seeing you all in Florida.
