About MS Research Australia
“Our mission is to accelerate Australian MS research toward the prevention, better treatments and a cure for MS.”
May 30th is World MS Day and as we celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future we want to take a moment to say a massive thank you for funding MS research in Australia.
You are making a huge difference to the lives of people living with MS by enabling our researchers to continue their incredible work to create a world free from MS.
“We’d like to say thank you to all of our supporters for powering MS research” – Dr Julia Morahan, Head of Research at MS Research Australia
“We wouldn’t be able to do any of this without help from you all – it’s amazing and it’s very much appreciated” – Dr Peter Crouch, MS researcher at the University of Melbourne
MS Research Australia is the largest Australian not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding, coordinating, educating and advocating for MS research as part of the worldwide effort to solve MS.
To accomplish this since establishment in 2004, MS Research Australia has invested over $44.3 million into funding and facilitating MS research via major collaborative research platforms, and investigator-led research projects.
MS Research Australia is committed to developing and exploring research initiatives and collaborations, both within the MS research community and across different disease fields and disciplines. We believe this will provide the ability to galvanise and convene the best researchers from around the country and globe and dedicate them to a common unmet need, a world free from MS.
MS Research Australia is a small team of dedicated individuals responsible for all aspects of the operations, ensuring overheads are low so that more of the fundraised dollar can be directed straight to the best MS research projects. MS Research Australia was awarded 2017 Telstra Australian Charity Award and the Telstra NSW Business of the Year and the 2018, 2017 and 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award in the Australian Charity Awards and 2015 Charity of the Year.
