MSA Trust


Research strategy

The Trust, in collaboration with the Scientific Advisory Panel, is responsible for producing our Research Strategy which sets out the charity’s research focus over a three-year period, including criteria for our grant-giving programme.

If you are considering applying for funds during our annual grant round, please read our current Research Strategy to ensure the relevance of your project area before completing our application form.

We are open to working collaboratively, at home and abroad where there is a demonstrable connection to a UK-based Principal Investigator/institution.  If you would like to discuss possible ways of working in partnership, please email

The Trust relies on donations from individuals and charitable organisations to support its research activities.  If you would like to make a donation you can do this by clicking the button in the top left-hand corner of this page, or alternatively please contact the fundraising team in the office. Thank you.
