About this event

The second of our triMS.online global conferences took place on 11 June 2019 and showcased the latest insights on the theme: Current concepts in paediatric MS. The second triMS.online conference offered a diverse mix of presentations and engaging discussion on the ‘hot topic’ debate on the motion ‘Clinical trials in paediatric MS should be conducted for study drugs with efficacy in adult MS’.

The conference theme chosen by the Scientific Steering Committee brought paediatric MS to the forefront, enabling participants to gain further knowledge and ask questions to leading experts in the field.

We are committed to ensuring that our conferences are inclusive for all those involved in the study and treatment of MS. We also ensure the content of our conferences are available post-meeting to continue discussion and share information on these important topics.

Delegate feedback

Love the range of formats and environments evident throughout; podium-style; green screen; round table; home office. Added to the organic nature and accessible experience of the vent. That is, whatever it takes to get the right people in the room’ which of course the goal. Appreciated too the diversity of the presenters in all regards subspecialty clinician/research, and gender.
