MS Research Australia (MSRA) is the research arm of MS Australia, established in 2004 to accelerate research to find the cause and cure of multiple sclerosis.
We facilitate projects which aim to establish the environmental, genetic and neurological origins of MS and encourage collaboration between Australia's best medical researchers.
MS affects more young Australians than any other neurological condition.
It is a chronic and often disabling disease than randomly attacks and scars the protective insulation (myelin) that surrounds nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord.
Up to 21,000 Australians have MS, with 1,000 newly diagnosed each year.
MS affects three times more women than men, often diagnosed in their 20s and 30s.
The community cost of MS amounts to A$2 billion per annum. With your support we can achieve freedom from MS.
