Get involved in research

  • Join the MS Register

Get involved and help shape the future direction of MS research.

It takes time for clinical research to change people’s lives, but you can get involved and make a difference. 


Have MS? Remember to Register!

The MS Register will revolutionise our understanding of MS and finally put MS on the map. 

The MS Register is the world's first register to gather information from you – the person who lives with MS – with clinical and NHS data. Join the MS Register.

There are lots of different types of trials or studies that need people affected by MS to take part.

Your involvement could range from completing an online questionnaire to being in a clinical trial for a new treatment.

The MS Society Tissue Bank allows both people with and without MS to donate their brain and spinal cord tissue after their death, helping researchers to understand MS damage and find more effective treatments.

The Research Network helps us make sure that the research we fund reflects the needs and interests of people living with MS. It also helps us make sure we are communicating research in a way that’s accessible to everyone in the MS community.

"As a person with MS I feel that the advent of the Research Network offers the Society a truly inclusive approach to the appraisal of grant applications, in which all views are considered to create a truly holistic vision."
