The Projects, as is always the case, were recommended for funding by MS Research Australia’s Research Management Council following assessment, evaluation and ranking, including a peer-review process.  The projects were then considered and approved for funding by the Foundation’s honorary Scientific Research Committee and Board of Directors.  

THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to our big-hearted Sponsors and supporters whose tremendous generosity is enabling us to continue making a significant contribution to MS research in Australia.
