This is a 24-month longitudinal study focused on asymptomatic subjects with incidental magnetic resonance brain findings suggestive of multiple sclerosis (termed radiologically isolated syndrome, RIS) who will be compared with healthy controls and clinically definite multiple sclerosis patients. The aim of the study is to examine RIS subjects using cognitive testing and non-conventional magnetic resonance (brain and spinal cord volumetry, evidence of disintegrity of neurite pathways, metabolite concentration in regions of interest) to identify patterns of hidden damage to the nervous system despite the absence of symptoms. The study will also attempt to identify prognostic biomarkers based on those who will have converted to multiple sclerosis by the end of the study.
Doctoral degree in the field of medicine, biology, physics or biotechnology, obtained not earlier than 7 years before the year of employment in the project (not including maternity leaves)
Experience in advanced neuroimaging analysis (e.g. diffusion tensor models, volumetry, spectroscopy) and methods of data science
