Patient Management, Care and Rehabilitation Research Grants

Making Minorities a Priority in Research Recruitment

Racial and ethnic minorities are underrepresented in MS research, resulting in a lack of evidence about their disease characteristics and optimal treatment. You can play a vital role in correcting this imbalance by working to include members of minority groups in the studies you conduct or support. Use this toolkit to help you learn more about what is currently known about MS in different racial and ethnic minorities, and help you reach out to these communities and work with them in ways that are culturally appropriate, effective, and mutually beneficial.

Suggested Practices for Successful Recruiting


The Society supports research projects dealing with psychosocial issues, management of symptoms, care and rehabilitation, bioengineering and other topics related to improving the quality of life for people with multiple sclerosis. The emphasis of proposals in these areas should be the development of new techniques or principles, rather than minor improvements of existing techniques. Depending on the scope of the proposed project, applicants for Patient Management, Care and Rehabilitation support should apply for either a Regular Research grant or a Pilot Research grant.
