The MSA Trust is the main UK funder of research into multiple system atrophy. It is therefore critically important to ensure we are funding the best research and making the best use of the donations and other funding we receive.
The MSA Trust welcome the opportunity to collaborate with many organisations, and we work with the NHS, other charities, academic and pharmaceutical researchers who tell us they value the opportunity to liaise with our members and the wider MSA community through our work.
Much of the MSA Trust funded research has been used in published papers around the world. It has led to the development of treatment therapies and further research into the different stages of MSA disease progression. In this section we will keep you up to date with new publications and blogs about research development.
