£2 million of new MS research

Published date: 11 Oct 2016 at 9:36AM

We’re proud to announce that 10 new projects have secured funding through our 2016 grant round.

From investigating if a stroke drug could repair damage caused in MS to testing the benefits of specialist rehab, these projects cover a wide range of topics.

Managing MS symptoms and developing services are the focus for three projects. The other eight are biomedical. Those aim to understand more about the causes of MS – and discover targets for developing new treatments.

We’ve committed to raising £1,955,578 to support these cutting-edge research projects, which will all be starting in the next few months.

How did we decide?

Projects we fund need to be

  • of an international standard
  • focused on answering questions important to people living with MS.

Experts and people with MS review all the applications. This year we had 56 applications, which made for some very difficult decisions.
