The objective of this 5-year, $433K award is to train new investigators to become successful independent researchers in the field of multiple sclerosis rehabilitation research. The content focus is aligned with my other MS research and is on chronic pain, fatigue, and cognitive function in MS.
This award will continue to build the infrastructure, capacity, and reputation of MS clinical research at UM. Dr. Kratz has a strong team of collaborators, including Dr. Tiffany Braley here at Michigan in neurology, with whom she also collaborates on a PCORI grant which is a clinical trial related to fatigue in MS. This new grant will increase the department’s profile in Neurorehabilitation and in Rehabilitation Research Training, as well as Dr. Kratz’s work with fatigue.
