For researchers

  • MS in Focus

We've invested over £155 million into MS research to date.

We are proud to be funding research into a wide range of topics including stem cells, immunology, symptom relief and MS services.

This year we expect to invest several million pounds through our existing research portfolio, and award funding to several new projects.

We do not directly support study recruitment, but ask researchers to develop a clear engagement plan as part of their ethics approval.

We provide people affected by MS who are interested in taking part in trials or surveys with information on external resources such as the UK Clinical Trials Gateway and the MS Register.

The UK MS Clinical Trials Network (CTN) is an initiative lead by the MS Society that supports investigator lead clinical trials.

Our Research Network is a group of people affected by MS who are trained to use their experiences to improve the quality and relevance of research.
