Thursday October 13 2016 10:30 AM

11 new research projects

The UK MS Society have announced £2 million in funding for 11 new research projects.  From investigating if a stroke drug could repair damage caused in MS to testing the benefits of specialist rehab, these projects cover a wide range of topics.

Managing MS symptoms and developing services are the focus for three projects. The other eight are biomedical. Those aim to understand more about the causes of MS – and discover targets for developing new treatments.
