Over $2.4 Million Committed to Support Seven Operating Grants to Explore the Relationship of CCSVI to Multiple Sclerosis

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is open to research which will lead to major advances in our understanding of the causes of, and potential treatments, for MS — such as new drug therapies, CCSVI, and myelin repair strategies.

The MS Society has funded medical research into multiple sclerosis since the first grant of $10,000 was approved in 1949. It is now, along with its related MS Scientific Research Foundation, the single largest funder of MS research in Canada.

Of the research projects currently funded, about half are targeted at myelin biology and repair. Particular attention is focussed on finding ways to stimulate central nervous system cells to produce new myelin. Other significant areas of MS research are genetic susceptibility, immunology, MRI studies, Clinical and Population Health Research and treatment effects. The MS Society also funds young researchers just beginning careers at the masters, doctoral and postdoctoral levels.
