MS Research Australia has been recognised as a Winner of the Australian Charity Awards for Outstanding Achievement in 2017 for a third consecutive year.
Dr Matthew Miles, CEO, MS Research Australia said ‘We are incredibly honoured to receive this award, which recognises our performance management and ability to be innovative. MS Research Australia’s collaborative approach is ensuring that we are active not only nationally, but in the global charge against MS’.
The Australian Charity Awards are a partner program of The Australian Business Awards and have been established to identify, recognise and reward not-for-profit organisations for their exceptional work and initiatives.
‘The Australian Charity Awards 2017 are proud to acknowledge the role of charitable organisations in Australia and commend the organisations recognised for the execution of innovative initiatives that have significantly benefited charitable causes,’ Australian Charity Awards Program Director, Ms Tara Johnston, said.
‘Today, charitable organisations are facing ongoing challenges in their operating environment. Measuring the performance and impact of their initiatives has become an important part of operations for the third sector,” Ms Johnston added.
MS Research Australia is particularly delighted to be recognised with the Outstanding Achievement Award three years in a row. It is a true testament to the hard work of the small team and clear recognition that MS Research Australia’s innovative approach positions us as one of the leaders in the MS research community as well as the not-for-profit sector.

‘Our congratulations to FSHD Global Research Foundation who has been chosen as the 2017 Charity of the Year. It is wonderful to see a small focussed, transparent and nimble charity recognised in this way. MS Research Australia worked with FSHD in 2015 on a collaborative project and we definitely agree they are a very worthy recipient’ said Dr Matthew Miles.
‘We would also like to congratulate the other award winners, especially to our well regarded research collaborator JDRF Australia and last year’s winner Cure Brain Cancer’.
