CMSC INforMS: Dr. Anne Cross Discusses Strides In Multiple Sclerosis Research, Recent Award

Years ago, when many multiple sclerosis researchers believed that a type of immune cell known as a T-cell was the cause of the disease, Dr. Anne Cross turned her focus instead to B-cells. Her findings have led to key breakthroughs in MS research – and also to receiving the John Dystel Prize for Multiple Sclerosis Research from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the American Academy of Neurology.
Cross, who is The Manny and Rosalyn Rosenthal – Dr. John L. Trotter MS Center Chair in Neuroimmunology of Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation, joined Thursday’s St. Louis on the Air for a conversation with guest host Jim Kirchherr of the Nine Network.
