5. Myelin Repair Foundation
The Myelin Repair Foundation was created in 2004 with a specific purpose of demonstrating myelin repair for MS, which the organization considers “a new and comprehensive model for medical research and drug development that significantly shortens the time to market for new medicines for all diseases.” Since its inception, the Myelin Repair Foundation has funded basic research in the field, which led to the identification of more than 100 novel potential myelin repair treatment targets and the discovery of multiple new research tools. It has also raised approximately $60 million to support its myelin repair research program.
