MS Society of Canada announces $3.8 million to study progressive forms of MS
The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and the Multiple Sclerosis Scientific Research Foundation announced a $3.8 million grant to investigate the complex interplay between degeneration and inflammation in multiple sclerosis (MS).
The grant will fund a study led by Dr. Peter Stys from the University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute, which would investigate damage that occurs in MS prior to inflammation. This research may have special relevance for those with progressive forms of MS.
Collaborative grants funded by the MS Scientific Research Foundation support large, innovative, multi-centre studies that will lead to major advances in the field of multiple sclerosis. Key collaborators of the study include colleagues from the University of Calgary, the University of British Columbia, and Laval University and the VU University in Amsterdam. The MS Scientific Research Foundation receives the majority of its funding from the MS Society of Canada....Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... pageid/722
