Kessler Foundation MS scientist awarded Patterson Trust Award in Clinical Research
Date:3/19/2014

West Orange, NJ. March 19, 2014. Lauren Strober, PhD, was awarded a Patterson Trust Award in Clinical Research, a two-year grant for $75,000. Dr. Strober, a neuropsychologist, will use this grant to explore ways to address the high rate of unemployment among individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). Dr. Strober is a senior research scientist in Neuropsychology & Neuroscience Research at Kessler Foundation.

"Given the early ages at which MS is diagnosed," noted Dr. Strober, "it is a priority to help individuals maintain employment and assist practitioners in guiding their patients' decisions regarding employment." Dr. Strober is the recipient of a National Institutes of Health K23 Career Development Award (K23 HD069494), for which the ultimate objective is to identify the disease- and person-specific factors that contribute to individuals with MS deciding to leave the workforce. The Patterson Trust Award will enable Dr. Strober to extend her line of investigation to examine the long-term outcomes associated with leaving the workforce, e.g., depression, worsened health. Dr. Strober and her team will seek to answer such questions as, "Do individuals who leave work have better outcomes than those who stay employed or vice versa?" and, "Why do individuals who were working at onset decide to leave?"

"At Kessler Foundation, finding ways to improve or maintain function is just the first step. We look long-term at obstacles to leading a full and productive life," said Dr. Strober. "The Patterson Trust Award will help us find ways to overcome these obstacles for people with MS."
