Dean Medal Award

In 2016, a second award was made to Dr Nonnie McNicholas from St Vincent’s Hospital who is planning to travel to the 'Karolinska Instituet' in Sweden to further her research into to the measurement of cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers indicative of disease progression in people with MS.

The award is to honour the life and work of Dr Geoffrey Dean (1918-2009). MS Ireland established the Dean Medal award in late 2010. The award is a travel bursary to help young researchers fund their educational trips to centres of excellence and enhance their understanding and knowledge of MS.
