Every dollar raised goes to research


All projects funded by the Foundation are recommended for funding by MS Research Australia’s Research Management Council following assessment, evaluation and ranking, including a peer-review process.

MS Research Australia Brain Bank

The Trish Foundation has an eye for investing in essential infrastructure to support MS researchers. In 2006 the Foundation provided the initial funds for the biggest MS DNA Bank. In 2007, the Foundation’s contribution of $100,000 seeded the roots of what has become the MS Brain Bank.

The objective of the MS Brain Bank is to distribute well characterised high quality post-mortem tissue from MS donors to scientists researching Multiple Sclerosis in order to increase our understanding of the disease and thereby achieve improved outcomes for people with MS.
