Dr. Scott Johnson, Myelin Repair Foundation

Dr. Scott Johnson, founder and President of the Myelin Repair Foundation, presented information on the Accelerated Research Collaboration model. The Myelin Repair Foundation, a non-profit organization, has created a research model that uses collaboration from many partners to accelerate the bench to bedside process. Under this new model, patients receive treatments faster for diseases, and collaboration and innovation are key driving forces to making it successful. Dr. Johnson encouraged a focus on creative problem solving, creating many teams instead of one large one, risk taking and entrepreneurism, and stressed that collaboration is intellectually stimulating and very productive.
