About NMO Clinic and Research Lab

The NMO Clinic and Research Laboratory at Mass General is the first home in New England for patients with NMO, MOG (Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein) spectrum disorders, transverse myelitis and other rare autoimmune disorders of the central nervous system. Here, we specialize in these rare conditions – they are not an afterthought.

In our clinic, you can expect to see physicians who work at the vanguard of their fields. You could join us in increasing awareness about your particular disease. And you may find community with others who suffer from similar ailments. We hope you will take part in our surveys, donate to our biobank, and maybe even participate in a clinical trial, becoming a part of the solution to your own disease.
