The National MS Society recently opened new funding opportunities to the MS research community. These opportunities support research relevant to the Pathways to MS Cures Roadmap
, an initiative that will drive progress by increasing alignment and focus of global resources on high priority research questions to cure MS for every person affected by the disease.
The new funding opportunities also support the MS research and care workforce, including new opportunities for research and clinical fellowships/mentorships and early career awards.
