Research Interests
The role of vitamin D in MS

Dr. Mowry became interested in multiple sclerosis (MS) prior to beginning college and first performed research in multiple sclerosis as an undergraduate biology major at Georgetown University. As a neurology resident at the University of Pennsylvania, she began her multiple sclerosis clinical research activities in conducting a study of visual dysfunction and quality of life in multiple sclerosis. As a fellow at UCSF, Dr. Mowry evaluated prognostic factors in multiple sclerosis and examined health-related quality of life in multiple sclerosis, particularly as a marker of disease burden. Dr. Mowry continued as a member of the faculty. She explored the association of vitamin D status with the risk of relapses among children with MS and was subsequently awarded a grant from the NIH to study the role of vitamin D in the course of MS.

Dr. Mowry joined the Johns Hopkins Department of Neurology as an Assistant Professor in July, 2011. In addition to ongoing studies, she is launching a multicenter randomized controlled trial of vitamin D supplementation in MS.
