The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) recently announced the successful Australian research projects and fellowships awarded funding for 2016.
A total of six new MS research projects were announced in this year’s funding round, bringing over $3.2 million of funding for MS research over the next three to five years.
The new MS projects encompass a range of exciting research areas, including several projects exploring ways to promote the growth and repair of myelin in the brain, immune system function and the environmental risk factors for MS.
All of these projects are outstanding additions to the breadth of research underway in Australia, helping us to understand more about MS and how it may be treated or prevented.
