For Researchers

About iConquerMS: the Multiple Sclerosis Patient-Powered Research Network

iConquerMS™ is a research network composed of people with MS and people who care about MS who contribute health data, biosamples, knowledge and ideas to enable and accelerate MS research.

Data, biosamples and insights contributed by iConquerMS participants under informed consent are available to researchers investigating topics important to people with MS. Research topics can include treatments and outcomes, lifestyle and activities, quality of life, employment and finances, health care, biomarkers of MS, and many other topics.

iConquerMS was created by the nonprofit Accelerated Cure Project in collaboration with leading healthcare communications firm Feinstein Kean Healthcare and the Complex Adaptive Systems Initiative at Arizona State University. It is governed by a board and committees populated by experts in various fields, the majority of whom have been diagnosed with MS.

iConquerMS is supported by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Initiative (PCORI), which provided the initial funding to establish the network and has subsequently funded the development of iConquerMS Kids & Teens and iConquerMS Caregivers. 

We welcome researchers in the US and worldwide to learn more about conducting research with iConquerMS and to contact us to explore research studies and collaborations. Please read further to learn about how iConquerMS can support your research.
