Reingold Award to cell biologist studying how myelin repairs itself.

James Salzer, MD, PhD, professor of cell biology and neurology at the New York University School of Medicine, received the Stephen C. Reingold Research Award following reviews of 222 grant applications sent to the Society. The peer review committee ranked Dr. Salzer's proposal at the top for its scientific merit and potential to benefit people with MS. Dr. Salzer and his lab team are piecing out steps that nerve cells take in stimulating new myelin to form on damaged nerve fibers.

The award is named for Stephen C. Reingold, PhD, who served the Society's research program for 22 years. Dr. Reingold retired in 2005.
