Multiple Sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another.

"Dr. Singer's new MS Center will bring innovations in treating this disease as well as cutting-edge care for MS patients in region," said Joan Magruder, president, Missouri Baptist Medical Center. "As a principal investigator, Dr. Singer has been involved in major clinical trials for multiple sclerosis, including potential new treatments. He is a leader in bringing advancements in research and early treatment to individuals with MS, and we are thrilled to have him coming on-staff."

Concurrently with his move to Missouri Baptist, Dr. Singer has launched a new website, http://www.mslivingwell.org, where he offers information to empower patients so they can maximize their potential to live well with multiple sclerosis. "Learning more about MS, including treatment options, allows people living with MS to make better decisions that can affect them now and in the future," said Dr. Singer.

Dr. Singer, a native of St. Louis, is board-certified in neurology. He earned his undergraduate degree from Duke University and his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed his residency training in neurology at New York Hospital-Cornell University. In addition, Dr. Singer completed a neuroimmunology fellowship focusing on clinical and laboratory research in multiple sclerosis at the National Institutes of Health. He is an active member of the American Academy of Neurology and serves as a member of the clinical advisory committee of the Gateway Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

In January 2008, he received the Pathlighter Award from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In March 2008, Dr. Singer was a recipient of a Congressional Proclamation from Congressman Russ Carnahan, who co-chairs the Congressional MS Caucus, for accomplishments in research in MS.

The MS Center for Innovations in Care will be located in Physicians' Office Building B, Suite 207, Missouri Baptist Medical Center, 3015 North Ballas Rd., St. Louis, Mo, 63131.
