Funding Opportunities and Conference News from the MS Society

We are delighted to announce that the MS Society’s 2013 Grant Round 1 for Project Grants, PhD Studentships and Innovative awards (all areas of research) and Junior Fellowship awards (care and services research only) is now open. The deadline for applications is 12 noon on 1 March 2013 with funding decisions communicated at the end of the summer.

More details on how to apply and a full guidance document is available on our website.

New Research Strategy

The MS Society has now launched a new research strategy, which must be considered when making research grant applications. Our new research strategy is available on our website here.

Further funding opportunities: Secondary Progressive MS Clinical Trial Call

We are also in receipt of additional restricted funds, so in line with our new research strategy, and in addition to our regular grant round, we are running a specific call for applications which focus on clinical trials for secondary progressive MS. Applications to this round must:

  • Be a clinical trial of a medicinal product which is already licensed in the UK and in use for another condition (repurposing)
  • Be aimed at reducing the accumulation of disability in people with secondary progressive MS
  • Include people with secondary progressive MS as trial participants.

Applications to this round must request no more than £500,000 from the Society.

This call is now open with the deadline for applications at 12 noon on 26 March 2013, with funding decisions communicated at the end of the summer. As funding for this round will be restricted, applications to this round which are not successful but meet the eligibility criteria will be considered as part of Grant Round 1.

More details on how to apply and a full guidance document is available on our website.

For any questions regarding research grant applications please call the MS Society Research Team on 020 8438 0822 or email research@mssociety.org.uk.
