Description of research:
1.The effect of oral dimethyl-fumarate on MRI outcomes and correlation with changes of neurofilament levels and inflammatory molecules in the CSF

This PhD project was supervised by Profesor Zsolt Illes, the Thesis will be submitted.
We plan to add the MRI as a continuation study.

2.Interactions between progressing pathology and health measurement scales in the domains of the International Classification and Function in progressive Multiple Scle-rosis (a PhD project) it is a prospective 2-years study with patients with high risk for secondary progression and definite secondary progressive MS, biomarker/MRI/health measurement scales outcomes; comparing the 2 groups and correlation between out-comes
Mads Ravnborg PhD project supervised by Professor Zsolt Illes

3. New MR scanning methods for diagnosis of brain cancer without surgery, Professor Frantz Rom Poulsen
