NOW: No Opportunity Wasted

We are at a pivotal moment in time where significant progress is being made and breakthrough solutions can change the world for everyone with MS.

Finding solutions for people with MS is our highest priority

  • Research is essential to finding solutions that change lives.
  • We will fuel research through increased investments – a record-breaking $50 million in 2014.
  • Our goals are to
    • Stop the disease in its tracks.
    • Restore function.
    • End MS forever.

Our approach is comprehensive and focused, and we collaborate worldwide. We pursue all promising paths to uncover solutions for EVERYONE with MS, while focusing on three priority areas:

  • Progressive MS.
  • Nervous System Repair, including Myelin Repair.
  • Wellness and Lifestyle.

And while we drive our priority areas, we remain nimble to seize promising new opportunities.

The National MS Society is the best investment in driving solutions and changing the world for people with MS.  A few examples include:

  • Recruited more than 800 new MS researchers to the field.
  • Provided early career support and funding to nearly every thought leader in MS research.
  • Set standards in diagnosis, symptom management, pediatric MS, complementary and alternative medicine, rehabilitation research, clinical trial strategies and stem cell research.
  • Established the MS field of nerve and myelin repair which resulted in trials for treatment.
  • Drove research uncovering genes contributing to MS susceptibility and new treatment avenues.
  • Paved the way for all existing therapies – none of which existed 20 years ago.
