The history of MS research
Find out how far we've come, and why we're closer than ever to stopping MS.
The MS Society is born
Research into bladder issues and first trial of steroids for relapses
MS Society Tissue Bank founded
We set up our Research Network
We open the MS Society Edinburgh Centre for MS Research
We launch the UK MS Register
We help set up the International Progressive MS Alliance
Myelin repair treatment in first UK clinical trial
MS-SMART results announced
We fund a new study into vitamin D and MS
DELIVER-MS – determining the best therapy option for early MS
Bexarotene trial results expected
We set up our clinical trials platform
The next research breakthrough is in reach
Our vision is a future free from the effects of MS. But we need your help.
£30could process one blood sample, giving researchers crucial information about genes and the immune system.
£50could pay for an hour on a microscope, so scientists can study cells and tissue in greater detail and improve their understanding of the biology of MS.
£100could pay for half an hour of MRI use, so researchers can monitor the success of clinical trials and understand MS in more detail.
Every penny you give really does take us a step closer to stopping MS. Your donation will make a difference.
£10a month could pay for lab equipment like microscope slides to study the building blocks of MS
£20a month could pay for lab equipment like petri dishes to grow bacteria important for studying genetics
£30a month could process a blood sample to help us understand what causes MS, so we can stop it in its tracks
Your regular donation means we can keep funding world class MS research with confidence. Together we will stop MS.
