OMRF has named Willard “Bill” Freeman and Jacquelyn Gorman to its scientific staff.
Berkley is board certified in neurology and sees patients in OMRF’s Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence.
This was OMRF’s eighth year to hold the benefit, which has raised $5.2 million since 2012.
The award-winning Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence at OMRF is one of the preeminent MS research and treatment centers in the world.
The National Institutes of Health awarded the grants, which will fund research on autoimmune diseases and human exposure to anthrax.
In MS, immune cells attack the protective covering of nerves in the brain, causing vision problems, tremors, paralysis, painful spasms, imbalance and cognitive changes.
