MS Research Australia has a message of thanks to the Hearts and Minds Community for the support we provide them and their research to Stop and Reverse MS within the next 10 years.
MS Research Australia funding is significantly leveraged by recipients for maximum impact. For every $1 granted to MS Research Australia Project researchers, they have been able to source, on average, an additional $5 of funding to further their research.
Untied financial support such as that received from the Hearts and Minds Community, allows MS Research Australia to also develop unique research projects that encourage matched funding. Their 3-year Paired Fellowships Project supported by the Macquarie Group Foundation is an example of this, enabling a senior research fellow and a clinician to work together to fast-track research breakthroughs and improve outcomes for people living with MS. In addition to their significant findings made to date, the researchers have also sourced over $13 million in additional funding for their research, as a direct result of this Paired Fellowship project.
