Welcome to the IMSGC

For whom?

The International Multiple Sclerosis Consortium website is aimed primarily at scientists working on multiple sclerosis (MS) and MS-related diseases. For more general information or advice about MS, please see your national Multiple Sclerosis Society or its equivalent. Find your local MS society or other MS organisations through this link. 

The latest update on MS genetics

The IMSGC congratulates all lead and co-authors on the latest publication, which has now resulted in the identification of over 200 MS-associated genetic variants. We especially acknowledge all patients and controls that contributed with biosamples, without whom this work would not have been feasible. The publication can be accessed here.


The IMSGC has at least one monthly teleconference for the general members, in addition to specific teleconferences for individual task-forces and analysis teams.
