About MS Research Australia
“Our mission is to accelerate Australian MS research toward the prevention, better treatments and a cure for MS.”
MS Research Australia is the largest not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding, coordinating and advocating for MS research in Australia, as part of the worldwide effort to unravel the complexity of MS. The primary mission is to accelerate research towards the prevention, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for MS.
To accomplish this since establishment in 2004, MS Research Australia has invested over $36.7 million into 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, 2017 and 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award in the Australian Charity Awards and 2015 Charity of the Year.
