Cynthia Benz has lived with MS for over 25 years and so offers an 'insider's perspective. She has worked as a lecturer and counsellor in adult education, and recently completed a doctorate. Cynthia has spoken widely on MS across the British Isles and abroad. Richard Reynolds is Professor of Cellular Neurobiology at Imperial College, London. He is also the Scientific Director of the UK Multiple Sclerosis Tissue Bank. As he has been carrying out MS-related research for the last 20 years, both in Switzerland and the UK, Richard provides a scientific insight into this enigmatic illness.
