The von Büdingen Lab is part of the Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Research Group at UCSF. Dr. von Büdingen is an Investigator on the UCSF MS EPIC Study – we aim to understand immune mechanisms that occur during the earliest stages of MS and may, over time, lead to progressive neurological disability. More recently, we also became interested in autoimmune mechanisms that promote the development of neuropathic pain in MS. Our goal is to use newly gained knowledge for translation into therapies and disease markers.
