The Multiple Sclerosis Society invites applications for its innovative awards. These provide support for short-term, small-scale projects to allow researchers to explore new ideas in MS research that might merit further support.
The MS Society is interested in the following research areas:
•care and services research, such as relieving symptoms of MS, developing and evaluating services for people affected by MS or exploring the social and economic impact of MS;
•biomedical research to identify the causes of MS, or identifying and developing disease-modifying therapies.
The society particularly encourages proposals with focus on translational and clinical biomedical research.
Projects should take place in a university, hospital, medical school or other research institution or place of medical practice based in the UK, and may provide for the salary of scientific or technical assistants and researchers, the running costs of the project and the purchase of items of essential equipment. Innovative awards are worth up to £40,000 and last a maximum of 12 months.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 3 July with funding decisions communicated in December. For details on how to apply please read the guidance for applicants.
All applications should be submitted via the MS Society online application system, available at: https://research.mssociety.org.uk/
