Driving Solutions

A Vision for MS

Read about the Society’s research goals for 2011-2015


The National MS Society drives progress through a comprehensive approach to research, including a variety of Society programs and funding mechanisms, such as Fast Forward which focuses on advancing the transition of promising new therapies to rapid commercial development and understanding mechanisms underlying the disease.

The Society supports and funds research activities spanning ALL research stages, including early discovery research, translational research that brings promising ideas forward into actual therapeutic solutions for testing, and clinical trials. We offer a spectrum of funding opportunities and other resources to develop and support MS investigators at virtually every stage of their careers.

MS research is the Society’s highest priority, and we are increasing our annual investments yearly to drive solutions for every single person with MS.
