John DeLuca, PhD, the Foundation's VP of Research and Training will attend with research scientists Victoria Leavitt, PhD, Lauren Strober, PhD, and James Sumowski, PhD. Kessler Foundation is known for rehabilitation research in cognition and mobility. MS research at Kessler Foundation is conducted in the Neuropsychology & Neuroscience Laboratory under the direction of Nancy Chiaravalloti, PhD.

"Cognitive impairment is a significant cause of disability in MS," said Dr. DeLuca. "We are pleased to join with our colleagues in the global community to work toward effective preventive and therapeutic strategies. At Kessler Foundation, our interest extends to the impact of cognitive difficulties on employment, a major consideration in this relatively young patient population." Dr. Leavitt will present her research on predictors of memory decline in MS; Dr. Strober 's topic is cognitive predictors of unemployment among people with MS and Dr. Sumowski will discuss the protective effect of intellectual enrichment against cognitive impairment , a finding in MS that was demonstrated for the first time at Kessler Foundation.
