The Myelin Repair Foundation Welcomes University of California, San Francisco’s Dr Jonah Chan to its Research Consortium

The Myelin Repair Foundation (MRF) today announced the newest member of its research consortium, Dr. Jonah Chan, Associate Professor of Neurology from University of California, San Francisco. As a sponsored researcher, Dr Chan joins 40 MRF principal investigators and researchers in the consortium focused on advancing myelin repair science for multiple sclerosis (MS).

“As a scientist, I’ve always wanted to impact humanity in a positive way, but sometimes it’s not clear how to take research findings to the next step after publishing a paper,” said Dr Jonah Chan, Ph.D. “The Myelin Repair Foundation makes it easier for my research to achieve the next steps, closer to the patient with its translational medicine platform.”

“Dr Jonah Chan joins our forward-thinking research consortium, comprised of the new generation of scientists thinking outside the box to bring scientific discoveries closer to patients,” said Scott Johnson, president of the Myelin Repair Foundation. “We’ve always prided ourselves on collaborating with the best scientists in myelin and multiple sclerosis, along with leading academic research universities to advance myelin repair science forward to clinical trials. With Dr. Chan on board, he supports our efforts to accelerate research for new MS treatments.”
