All applications for Research Projects must be aligned with the funding principles of the Trish MS Research Foundation.

The aim of the Trish MS Research Foundation is to find a cure or preventive strategy for multiple sclerosis. The Foundation is particularly committed to funding research that will reverse the effects of MS through repair and regeneration and ultimately lead to a cure. The Foundation has funded Trish Translational Research Projects, Project grants, Fellowships, Scholarships and Incubator grants and has also contributed to Platform Programs.

Expressions of Interest for a Trish Multiple Sclerosis Research Foundation Fellowship for $100,000 per annum for five years, which will commence 1st January 2024, have closed.

The Trish Multiple Sclerosis Research Foundation Fellowship will be awarded to an Australian researcher undertaking high-quality translational MS research which demonstrates clear evidence of translational research capacity.  This prestigious award is available to established researchers, up to 7-years post-doctoral, who are potential leaders in the MS research community, providing security and funding support for this person to collaborate with or head up a team (or establish their own team).  The Fellowship will be awarded to a researcher who has an established and verifiable track record (relative to opportunity) in MS research at a national and international level.

Following the Foundation’s honorary Scientific Research Committee’s rigorous approval process, including a peer-review process, a decision will be made before the end of the year.
