Rooted in Oregon – Meet Dr. Becca Spain

Translating research ideas into tangible results is the mission of the Oregon Clinical & Translational Research Institute at OHSU.

In Episode 2 of OCTRI’s podcast, “Rooted in Oregon,” neurologist Becca Spain shares her background and the education that led her to focus on multiple sclerosis research and the resources and services that OCTRI provided that helped her along the way.

Spain recently was lead author of “Effect of high-intensity exercise on multiple sclerosis function and phosphorous magnetic resonance spectroscopy outcomes,” “Lipoic acid and other antioxidants as therapies for multiple sclerosis” and “Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody-associated demyelination comorbid with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy.”
