In recognition of World MS Day, Dr. Claire McCoy together with organizers from Trinity College Dublin,  MS Society Ireland  and Novartis joined to create an MS Research Network event, on the 30th of May. The aim of the event was to establish an official researcher network to enhance collaboration, visibility, and congeniality for scientists working on MS in Ireland.
