About Me

I am a physician-scientist who specializes in caring for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). I chose this field because I am passionate about finding better treatments for MS that will prevent disability and disease progression.

In addition to MS, I also treat patients with conditions such as myelin-oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody-associated disease (MOGAD), neuromyelitis optica (NMO), autoimmune encephalitis (AE), transverse myelitis (TM), neurosarcoidosis, central nervous system vasculitis and stiff-person syndrome.

My laboratory research is focused on myelin repair, finding strategies to prevent neurodegeneration, how aging influences MS and oligodendrocyte interactions with immune cells.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 10/25/2021, Dr. Harrington has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
