We believe that involving people affected by MS will strengthen the quality and relevance of your research. Read more information on public involvement.
All applications should fit our Research Strategy.
In 2013 we completed a James Lind Alliance Partnership (JLA) to identify the research priorities for people affected by MS and healthcare professionals. Applications that specifically address these priorities will be considered more favourably. Find out more about this process.
Information on what we fund and how to apply can be found in our 2017 Grant Round Applicant Guidance.
We seek to develop new collaborations with other organisations to support our research strategy.
