The ECTRIMS (European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis) conference is an annual gathering of MS researchers and clinicians. There's a programme of presentations and posters where they can share their work with each other. Usually this work is ongoing, sometimes not yet published in scientific journals, so it's a great way to learn about the cutting-edge developments in research.
Conferences like this allow researchers to get feedback from other experts, which they can take back to their labs or clinics to improve their research.
