MS Research Australia funding in 2016
Each year the Kiss Goodbye to MS community come together to raise funds for ongoing research into MS. Kiss Goodbye to MS is run by MS Research Australia, which is the largest non-government funder of MS research in Australia. This year, MS Research Australia awarded $1.834 million in research funding across a range of projects, travel awards and people support grants, such as scholarships and fellowships.
This round received our largest ever number of applications and we are proud that the 24 successful projects cover a range of scientific and allied health disciplines to investigate MS from all angles, bringing the total number of investigator-led projects to 47 grants for 2016.
Project grants are awarded to researchers to cover costs towards a specific research project and this year’s recipients will be investigating a number of exciting avenues in MS research.
We look forward updating you on the progress of our existing and new projects throughout the year.
