Judith Jaffe Multiple Sclerosis Center

The foundation of the Judith Jaffe Multiple Sclerosis Center (JJMSC) is a model of comprehensive, individualized medicine that is delivered by a team of leading specialists, including physicians utilizing highly innovative diagnostic and therapeutic tools, and health care professionals addressing the emotional, cognitive, and rehabilitative needs of patients and their families. The Center’s primary clinical and research objectives are to stop and reverse the progression of multiple sclerosis. Combining excellence in highly personalized clinical care with an extensive research program in regenerative medicine, we pledge our commitment to provide exceptional care to individuals suffering from MS.

The Jaffe MS Center is located in Manhattan at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork- Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, an internationally-acclaimed teaching hospital that is consistently ranked in the top ten hospitals in the US. Our MS specialists provide individualized patient care and personalized medicine, and orchestrate the contributions of a team of world-renowned clinicians in Neurology, Neuro-Ophthalmology, Rehabilitative Medicine, Urology, Neuropsychology, Neuroradiology, and Neurosurgery, along with clinical social workers and nursing specialists.

Clinical, translational, and basic research programs at the JJMSC prioritize limiting disability and restoring function in MS. Collaborative research in neuroscience, immunology and human genetics is geared to identify novel therapeutic targets in MS. Our programs in molecular and magnetic resonance imaging are developing new methods to visualize axons and myelin in MS. A massive, concerted research effort focuses on identifying drugs that promote regeneration of myelin in MS. Patients at the JJMSC have many opportunities to participate in the large number of ongoing clinical trials examining the effectiveness of drugs in limiting disease progression and restoring physiologic function in MS. This superlative research enterprise is funded through competitive grants from the National Institutes of Health, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industry, and very generous philanthropy.
