For researchers

In today’s money, we've invested over £218 million in research since 1956.

We're 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.
