The Department of Neurology and the Division of Clinical Neuroscience of the University of Nottingham are internationally recognised for research work in multiple sclerosis. The MS Clinical Trials Unit of the University of Nottingham was founded in 1994 and has participated in over 60 national and international clinical trials, the most recent of which are listed here.

In one upcoming clinical trial funded by the MS Society of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, we will study whether a small and harmless number of parasitic worms can lead to an improvement of the severity of MS over a 12 month period.

Our research focuses on magnetic resonance imaging, pathology, and immunology of MS and is funded by the MS Society, the European Union, the pharmaceutical industry and by other national and international funding agencies. A list of recent publications can be found here under individual staff profiles.
