RADIEMS Cohort Study

The Reserve against Disability in Early MS (RADIEMS) cohort study is an NIH-funded prospective study of risk and protective factors related to disease and disability progression in persons with early relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), with a focus on cognitive function (R01 HD082176, PI: Sumowski). One principal goal is to identify modifiable protective factors that can help persons with MS preserve function and quality of life. This large project is made possible by the time and effort of many talented and committed collaborators in the Corinne Goldsmith Dickinson Center for MS at Mount Sinai, as well as the MS Center and Division of Cognitive Neuroscience at Columbia University Medical Center.
