MS Walk


Young Minds of MS Research is a chance for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and new researchers to share their multiple sclerosis (MS) research, which is taking place through the University of Alberta, University of Calgary and University of Lethbridge. Conference participants have the opportunity to learn about promising research from up and coming MS researchers, who in turn have the opportunity to share what their research means for MS today, as well as what it may mean tomorrow.

For MS Connect, Young Minds of MS Research will consist of both a poster session and oral presentations.

Poster Session

15 young or up and coming researchers will be invited to present their research at MS Connect in poster format. The poster session will run from 12:30 1:30 pm on Saturday, November 14th with the researchers available to answer questions. Posters will be available for viewing throughout the entire conference.

Oral Presentations

Out of the 15 researchers invited to present their research via poster, three will be invited to give a short 15-minute presentation at MS Connect.

We encourage you to stop by, learn, connect and speak with these researchers! As part of the Young Minds, you the audience will be key in providing input into selecting a winner of the best poster and oral presentation at the conference.

Young Minds of MS Researchers to be announced.

The Young Minds of MS Research is made possible through collaboration and partnership between the Alberta MS Network and the MS Society of Canada, Alberta and Northwest Territories Division.
