Multiple Sclerosis is a devastating neurological disease that usually begins in young adults. It can greatly limit their ability to have an independent life and impacts their family. There is no cure for MS and the treatments we have are life-long and often come with their own major side effects.

Dr Zhou’s research aims to understand the factors that cause MS and lead to its progression, which will provide novel insights to understand the biological changes that cause MS and develop new, better treatments.

Dr Zhou has shared details of his research at various public events including ‘Adults-Only Science Night’ at Questacon organised by Australia Academy of Science and the Menzies MS Research Flagship’s annual ‘Research with Connections’ event for the MS community.
