MS Research is dedicated to furthering understanding of Multiple Sclerosis to develop better treatments and in the hope of one day finding a cure.
To do this, we fund robust research in all apsects of MS. We also fund education bursaries for MS professionals and provide treatment courses to help improve the lives of people living with the condition.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive condition which causes nerve damage in the brain resulting in varying levels of lifelong disability, each year thousands are diagnosed with MS, this condition does not discriminate – men, women and children of all ages and ethnicity can be affected. In the UK MS is one of the most common causes of disability affecting young people.
We believe research is vital to:
find better answers to the problems those who have MS and those close to them face every day
maximise vital opportunities to bring us closer to an eventual cure
help to overcome the inadequacies and inequalities of treatment
further understanding of MS and its impact.
We have three main aims:
Listen to people with MS and those who share their lives
Learn more about the problems they face everyday
Act to alleviate those problems
