The Myelin Project

The Myelin Project aims to accelerate research on myelin repair. Myelin can be destroyed by hereditary neurodegenerative disorders such as the leukodystrophies, and by acquired diseases such as multiple schlerosis. Altogether, demyelinating diseases affect more than two million people worldwide.

Behind the Myelin Project is a multi-national gathering of families struck by one demyelinating desease or another. Refusing to accept the conventional view that science cannot be hurried, they resolved to advance the moment when myelin could be restored. They have done this by creating a framework in which researchers can cooperate effectively, by giving scientists adequate, prompt financing and by continuously interacting with them.
