The Johns Hopkins Precision Medicine Center of Excellence for Multiple Sclerosis (JH PMCOE-MS) seeks a Program Manager to support the program management functions of the Multiple Sclerosis Biomarkers program based in the Department of Neurology.

Predicting which treatments will be most successful and establishing new sets of care recommendations based on how aggressively MS is progressing and hope to expand those recommendations to cover factors related to an individual's lifestyle and environment.
Advancing treatment approaches through basic science and clinical research.
