1. Unbounded by traditional medical research models, the Myelin Repair Foundation (MRF) (http://www.myelinrepair.org) established the potential of myelin repair as an alternative to current immunosuppressant therapies for multiple sclerosis and is speeding up the process of bringing those treatments to patients through a new model for conducting medical research.

    In this BIL:PIL presentation, Scott Johnson, founder and president of the MRF, describes the high costs of the traditional medical research system (how it hurts individuals with chronic diseases through loss of productive years, loss of years in life, pain, cost to families) as well as the financial costs of the system.

    Johnson then dissects how and why the research system is broken and how he tackled the problem with an outsider's view, a "clean sheet of paper" and a plan.
