Progressive MS Alliance (Alliance)

The Progressive MS Alliance (Alliance) is connecting resources and experts around the world to find answers and develop solutions to end progressive MS. The Alliance drives scientific progress through funding the best research wherever it exists, with the ultimate goal of realizing the development of new treatments for people with MS. The Alliance recently announced the first round of 22 research grants to awardees in nine countries. These grants are the first in an ambitious program that will cumulatively invest €22 million over the next six years and forge international collaborative research networks.

On November 3, 2014 the Alliance released a new Request for Applications for the next round of research awards. The purpose of the next grant round is to enable and leverage global collaborative networks of excellence engaged in transformative research. Networks must consist of at least three organizations and a minimum of three countries must be represented in the network.
