National Multiple Sclerosis Society Funds $28 Million to Support Research Projects

As part of the comprehensive research strategy aimed at stopping MS (Multiple Sclerosis), the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in the US has committed $28 million to support 84 new MS research projects.

"MS research is a top National MS Society priority, with increasing annual investments to drive solutions for every person with MS," says Cynthia Zagieboylo, President and CEO of the Society. "We fund the entire research spectrum, propelling novel ideas into the lab, translating breakthroughs into clinical trials, and moving success in clinical trials into new treatments for people living with MS."

The society pursues all promising paths, and focuses on priority areas including progressive MS, nervous system repair, gene/environmental risk factors and wellness and lifestyle.

Bruce Bebo, PhD, Executive Vice President, National MS Society, said, "These innovative new projects add to the Society's comprehensive efforts to stop MS, restore function and end MS forever. While we fund more research than any other MS organization in the world, we also convene and empower the research community toward breakthroughs that can help people with MS live their best lives now."

Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body. MS is diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. Globally, over 2.3 million people live with the unpredictable challenges of multiple sclerosis.
