The Barancik Prize – Francisco Quintana
Congratulations to Prof. Francisco Quintana – ISNI president-elect – who has been awarded the prestigious Barancik Prize for his work toward understanding what triggers multiple sclerosis and how to stop it.
“Quintana has established innovative research programs that use advanced technology to make significant contributions to the understanding of the immune response and to identify potential therapeutic targets and biomarkers for MS. He recently developed a new research platform to identify gene-environment interactions that control central nervous system inflammation that drives the damage that occurs in MS. The studies identified novel pathways involved in the regulation of this inflammation. Moreover, these studies map out a novel way to systematically investigate environmental factors in MS and other diseases.” quote Benzinga
He will officially be awarded the price and deliver the Barancik Prize lecture at the next ACTRIMS Forum on February 27 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
