The Progressive MS Alliance invites you to participate in an informational conference call regarding two recently announced funding initiatives designed to accelerate research in progressive MS. The funding opportunities are:
If you have an innovative, scientific research project that’s also relevant to clinical practice, and are looking for funding, why not apply for the Grant for Multiple Sclerosis Innovation?
Up to €1 000 000 to be awarded annually to fund innovative research in MS.
Research topics could include: pathogenesis, response to treatment, prediction of MS subtypes, and identification of predictive or surrogate markers for treatment response.
The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation is dedicated to funding basic science research to find answers that will lead to the prevention, clinical treatment programs, and a potential cure for Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) Spectrum Disease. It funds only NMO research, not MS research.
MS Research Australia offers a range of grants, fellowships, and scholarships to support research into finding better treatments and a cure for MS.
The Multiple Sclerosis Society funds research into a wide range of topics including stem cells, immunology, symptom relief, and MS services.
The Multiple Sclerosis Scientific Research Foundation is the largest fund in the world dedicated strictly to MS research. The foundation funds research projects beyond the scope of the MS Society’s regular research program. It is a unique Canadian resource. Because of the foundation, highly innovative, large, collaborative research studies are under way.
