Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis
Member of the Board of Directors

Mission

Accelerated Cure Project’s (ACP) mission is to improve the health, healthcare, and quality-of-life for people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) by connecting people with MS, care partners, clinicians and researchers, and to work together to accelerate innovation, research, and the application of new knowledge.

We fulfill our mission through the development and deployment of centralized resources that enable people-centered research in MS. Our resources include the ACP Repository; iConquerMS(tm) -- the only people-powered research network for multiple sclerosis; and, the MS Minority Research Engagement Partnership Network.
