D.C. Metro Area Support Group Meeting

May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Please join us for the next meeting of our D.C. Metro Area Support Group on Sunday, May 19th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET.

Dr. Michael Levy is our featured speaker. He will present his latest research and answer questions for this special meeting, which takes place in the Parson’s Auditorium at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab.

Dr. Michael Levy is an Associate Professor of Neurology and the Medical Director of General Neurology at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Levy specializes in
taking care of patients with neuro-immunologic diseases, including multiple sclerosis,
transverse myelitis, optic neuritis, and neuromyelitis optica. In the laboratory, Dr. Levy’s
research focus is on the development of neural stems for regenerative therapy in these
diseases. He uses rat and mouse models to test the survival, differentiation, and functional
capacity of human neuro-stem cells to improve neurologic function and post inflammatory
conditions. The goal of his laboratory and clinical effort is to translate the basic science of stem
cell work to a human trial in transverse myelitis and other neuroimmunologic diseases.
