Participate in UW Medicine's Multiple Sclerosis Research (Voluntary)

Did you know that UW researchers, including many of your providers, have been among the nation’s leaders in MS research for over 40 years? 

The MS Center has a very active research program covering a wide variety of topics, ranging from learning about quality of life, symptoms, and experiences; to developing and testing approaches (medical and nonpharmacologic) for improving symptom management and patient well-being; to participating in large pharmaceutical trials.

We are currently recruiting for participants on the following topics:

– New diagnosis
– Exercise
– Cognition
– Fatigue
– Pain
– Falls
– Aging with physical disabilities
– Medication/drug trials

If you are interested in any of these topics, please ask to speak to a member of our research team today or call the clinic at 206-598-3344 to speak to the research staff by phone!
