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 wish to advise Researchers there will not be an application process for research projects this year.  Due to the excellent applications received last year, the Trustees agreed to fund a greater number of projects at that time and to defer the funding round in 2018.   

Please do check back in September 2019 for an announcement on a research round for 2019/20.

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.
