The Barancik Prize for Innovation in Multiple Sclerosis Research recognizes exceptional scientists whose work in the field of MS research demonstrates outstanding innovation and originality.
Administered by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and made possible by Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation, this annual international prize awards $100,000 to a scientist or team to be used at the discretion of the recipient.
