Interaction Gene-Environment in MS

Coordinator: Dr Manuel Comabella

Fundación Instituto de Investigación Valle de Hebrón

  • The objective of this program is to study the genetic markers associated with the disease and its relation to environmental factors associated with MS.
  • More specifically, we identify and validate the genes which are associated with multiple sclerosis in the Spanish population, as well as environmental factors (eg Vitamin D, viral infections) interact with genetic factors.

This program is organized into the following work packages:

WP1. Genetic factors in MS

WP2. Environmental factors in MS

WP3. Interaction genome-environment in MS
