Innovative awards provide support for short-term, small-scale projects to allow researchers to explore new ideas in MS research that might merit further support. The MS Society is interested in the following research areas:
- care and services research, such as relieving symptoms of MS, developing and evaluating services for people affected by MS or exploring the social and economic impact of MS;
- biomedical research to identify the causes of MS, or identifying and developing disease-modifying therapies.
The society particularly encourages proposals with focus on translational and clinical biomedical research. Innovative awards are worth up to £40,000 and last a maximum of 12 months.
