News on scientific advances in nutrition and multiple sclerosis

Noted MS Neurologist Dr. Roland Martin Wins 2023 John Dystel Prize for Multiple Sclerosis Research.

Dr. Roland Martin, an internationally recognized neurologist and researcher, is the recipient of the 2023 John Dystel Award for Multiple Sclerosis Research. This award honors his significant contribution in advancing our understanding of the immunological mechanisms underlying multiple sclerosis and translating them to develop innovative strategies to treat the disease. The Dystel Prize is awarded jointly by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the American Academy of Neurology. It was established in 1994 by former Society National Board member, the late Oscar Dystel, and his wife, the late Marion Dystel, in honor of their son, John Jay Dystel, an attorney whose promising career was cut short by the progressive disability of the disease that led to his death in June 2003. Dr. Martin was responsible for giving the Dystel Award lecture and received the award at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Boston, MA, on April 24, 2023.
