The discovery and validation of a plethora of digital tools has occurred in the past decade, but fundamental questions remain about which tools are best used to monitor and treat which aspects of a chronic neurological disease like multiple sclerosis (MS). This talk will review the major features to date and focus on the key gaps that these tools seek to address, as well as the barriers and facilitators to bringing these innovations into research and the clinic.

About the speaker:

Prof. Riley Bove is a neurologist who provides comprehensive care for patients with multiple sclerosis and studies how technologies such as telemedicine can improve the abilities of people with MS to obtain medical therapy, regain function and participate in research.

Bove's research is dedicated to finding new ways to promote neurological recovery in people with MS, including through emerging technologies and hormonal modulation. She has written more than 25 articles on the role that hormones, such as estrogens and testosterone, play in regulating the course of MS and other neurological disorders. She has also written and lectured on the importance of comprehensively targeting the health needs of men with MS. She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and then completed a residency in the joint neurology program of Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women's hospitals, followed by a clinical research fellowship at the Partners Multiple Sclerosis Center. Bove also earned a master's degree through Harvard Medical School's clinical investigation program.

After graduating from Harvard with a bachelor's degree in anthropology, Bove took several years to travel the world on a Fulbright grant, learning from patients and families through ethnographic study and film work. Bove is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers.
