PCORI-funded researcher John Corboy, MD — a professor of neurology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine — says patients with MS are the experts and play major roles in the study he is leading on the condition. The study is testing whether some patients, after years of successful treatments, might be able to safely stop taking those drugs.

Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
