Discovery Biology

ARC Model Clinical Development Translational Medicine Platform

When the Myelin Repair Foundation was established in 2004, there was very little known about the science of myelin repair. In order to build a solid scientific foundation of science to advance through the Myelin Repair Foundation’s research plan for a myelin repair therapeutic, we invested and funded top scientists to fund myelin research.

For Patients, the depth and breadth of these discoveries provides multiple potential targets against which therapies may be developed and demonstrated.

For Pharma, our position as sole licensee for these high-quality discoveries provides the necessary assurances that pharma partners need to commercialize as many of these discoveries as possible.

Watch this video showing myelin repair occurring in a petri dish in MRF Principal Investigator Dr. Ben Barres' lab at Stanford University.
