Bart Rypma of the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas is one of 10 recipients who have been awarded funding from $433,800 in grants from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Rypma’s study uses neuroimaging methods to identify mechanisms involved in MS-related cognitive dysfunction, according to UT Dallas. The society said the 10 high-risk pilot projects are part of the year-long Pilot Research Grant program which supports early-stage research projects to quickly evaluate their effectiveness.

In 2016, Rypma was awarded more than $290,000 in grant funding from the society to investigate how changes in blood flow can affect cognition in people with MS.
