Our Mission

The International Women in Multiple Sclerosis (iWiMS) network unites clinicians and researchers committed to advancing scientific discoveries and improving care for people with MS and related disorders.  Founded by women and supportive of all, iWiMS advocates for meritocracy, diversity, parity, and ingenuity in MS research and patient care.

About us

The International Women in MS (iWiMS) network was developed after a first informal meeting at the American Academy of Neurology in April of 2018.  Word of our mission spread quickly and globally and now resonates as a reality.  iWiMS has grown to more than 250 members from over 25 countries and is continually expanding.  iWiMS intends to create bridges between junior and senior investigators, roads between peers, and avenues across various parts of the world. We welcome all individuals including those who identify wholly or partially as women, men, transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals.
