New Research Projects commencing 2017 announced


With our heartfelt gratitude to our very generous Sponsors, donors and supporters, the Trish Foundation is delighted to announce research funding for grants commencing January 2017. These grants were recommended for funding following a thorough review of applications by external peer reviewers and MS Research Australia’s expert Research Management Council.   

The number and quality of applications received continues to grow year on year, making the funding decisions exceptionally challenging. However, the robust procedures ensure that the most rigorous science, with the greatest potential to make an impact for people affected by MS, can keep moving forward.

The Foundation is thrilled to be funding two project grants awarded to outstanding, emerging MS research leaders, Dr Tobias Merson at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University, Melbourne, and Dr Kaylene Young at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research, Tasmania. These researchers are pursuing exciting and complementary research projects to understand how nerve activity can be used to promote myelin re-growth and restore lost function in MS.

Full details of these two project grants and Dr Joshua Barton’s Postgraduate Research Scholarship, which the Trish Foundation is also funding, can be found on links from the Approved Funding page of our website.
