Your contribution makes a difference

MS Research Australia is the largest national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding and coordinating MS research in Australia to find better treatments, the cause and the cure for MS.

All financial contributions are vital to ensure MS Research Australia can continue to increase funding to support the best MS research in Australia.

There are many ways to support and contribute to MS Research Australia from fundraising to making a donation, regular giving or leaving a gift in your Will. The team are always happy to work with you to establish the most appropriate way for you to get involved.

We couldn’t do the work that we do without you. Together we can make a difference.

100 Cryotubes – to freeze the blood or DNA of 100 people with MS to be used in a range of projects to look at the genetics and biology of MS.

$180

$180

Will purchase a microarray chip which is used to screen the genome of a person with MS using their DNA sample as part of a larger study to investigate genetic changes in MS.

$250

$250

Will cover the cost to process one person’s blood sample. This is aimed at gaining a better understanding of the genes and DNA sequencing in people with MS.

$1,000

$1,000

Will support an early career research fellow for one week to investigate DNA and genetic factors of MS.

$2,000

$2,000

Facilitation of a Collaborative Research Workshop – MS Research Australia enables researchers to collaborate, thus increasing the power of individuals to make a difference to MS research.

$3,000

$3,000

Brain Donation Costs – to retrieve and process one MS donated brain as part of the MS Research Australia Brain Bank.

$5,000

$5,000

Tissue culture materials – many experiments are conducted on cells growing in dishes in the laboratory. $5000 will buy the tissue culture materials required for an MS research project for one year.

$25,000

$25,000

Incubator Grant – ‘Seed’ funding that enables researchers to get an innovative new research project off the ground and will hopefully lead to larger MS Research Australia or government funding in the future.

$95,000

$95,000

PhD Scholarship – funding for a 3 year research scholarship. PhD scholars will undertake important research projects whilst also receiving training to become independent qualified researchers.

$225,000

$225,000

Fellowship – will pay the salary of a post-doctoral (PhD qualified researcher) for 3 years. These fellowships retain young researchers who are building their expertise in MS research and working towards becoming independent research leaders.

$300,000

$300,000

Project Grants – Research grants of 1-3 years to pursue projects to increase our understanding of MS, cause, better treatments and prevention of MS and improve symptom management and daily living for people with MS.

$390,000

$390,000

Senior Research Fellowship – funding for a 3 year research fellowship for a leader in the MS research field to allow them to build a scientific team and pursue long term research goals in MS.
