The Multiple System Atrophy Trust is the main funder in the UK of research into MSA.
“The Trust’s vision, aspiration and ultimate goal is to one day find a cure for MSA, a sentiment shared by our members who tell us they see this as a key priority for the charity. To achieve this we are committed to funding the best scientific research. In 2014-2015 we spent £150,000 on research grants and we look forward to receiving future applications .”
Professor David Burn, Trustee and Chair of the Trust’s Scientific Advisory Panel
To ensure we are funding the very best research we comply with the criteria laid down by the research standards body, the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC). And our independent Scientific Advisory Panel reviews all grant applications and monitors their progress.
MSA is an extremely complex disease that is difficult to diagnose and research to find the cause and ultimately a cure may take many years. However, every research project we fund is one step closer.
