    FiB Episode 014: Working Towards a Cure for Multiple Sclerosis

    Scott Johnson and Robert Miller talk about the approaches used by Myelin Repair Foundation (MRF) to accelerate discovery...

    Marc Pelletier

    Scott Johnson is the President and Founder of the The Myelin Repair Foundation, and Dr. Robert Miller is a Principal Investigator with the MRF and Professor of Neurosciences at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland OH.

    Scott, Robert, and four more great neuroscientists with the MRF have taken on one the great medical challenges our time -Multiple Sclerosis (MS). They have developed and trademarked an exiting new approach to R&D called ARC, for Accelerated Research Collaboration, which they are applying to MS. Scientific American recently recognized Scott as one the top 50 leaders in science, business, and policy, and this model has been featured in "The Definitive Drucker" a biography of "ideas" of the business management icon Peter Drucker. By combining highly effective approaches to management and collaboration, with best minds in the fields of neuroscience and myelin repair, they are on a trek to conquer MS.
