Welcome to the Exercise Neuroscience Research Laboratory and
Multiple Sclerosis Research Center!We are dedicated to the study of exercise and its benefits in persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Located on the UofI campus in Champaign - Urbana, the goal of our research and our center is to establish the scientific evidence and methods for encouraging exercise and physical activity as behaviors that can yield desirable consequences for slowing, stopping, and reversing the life-altering effects of MS. We have research projects available for persons who are recently diagnosed through those who have been living with MS for decades. Many of these research projects are funded by the National MS Society.
