Scientific Breakthrough Award – 2022

2022 recipient

Stephen Hauser, MD

Professor Hauser’s research has advanced our understanding of the genetic basis, immune mechanisms, and treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). His work led to the development of B cell therapies for MS patients, representing a powerful new approach for relapsing forms of the disease. His 40+ year, career-long commitment has changed the landscape of treatment for what has been, until now, a relentlessly progressive form of MS.
