Research proposals invited

The Progressive MS Alliance is calling on researchers to submit proposals for research into progressive MS.

The Progressive MS Alliance is an ever-expanding alliance of organisations from around the world, with current managing members including the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society (US), Italian Multiple Sclerosis Society, and MS Society (UK).

The Alliance aims to accelerate knowledge and collaboration worldwide to identify solutions for people affected by progressive MS.

While there is better understanding of and effective therapies for relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis, treatments for progressive MS remain elusive. Finding answers to end progressive MS will bring hope for the 2.1 million people worldwide living with the uncertainty of what MS will bring for them tomorrow.

Proposals must be submitted by 14 January 2014.
