Brett Drummond

Brett has more than 15 years experience in MS research, having pursued graduate and post-graduate studies as a laboratory scientist at the University of Melbourne.  MStranslate was developed as a result of Brett’s desire to continue contributing to the MS community beyond his work as a scientist. 

His knowledge of MS and his talent for science communication has been recognised worldwide.  Since 2022, this recognition has included his appointment as host of the official European Committee for Treatment and Research In Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) podcast series.
