MS Society Research Grant Applications

Researchers have the opportunity to use data or samples from the Swiss MS Registry and the Swiss MS Cohort Study for their projects: The Swiss MS Registry collects information on the prevalence of MS as well as on therapies, symptoms and the quality of life of people with MS, whereas the Swiss MS Cohort Study generates a standardized collection of demographic, clinical, MRI data and body fluids that can be used to develop prognostic indicators and biomarkers of disease evolution and therapeutic response. If you are interested, please contact Viktor von Wyl for the MS Registry Jens Kuhle for the Cohort Study.

Deadline: May 21st 2017

Applications must be submitted by email to the administration of the Scientific Advisory Board.


Your grant application will be evaluated by a commission of people with MS and representatives of the Scientific Advisory Board and by three international experts and given a score from 3 to 6. Based on this score, the commission will decide if and to which amount your project can be funded. The Board of the MS Society will make the final decision.

By the end of August we will let you know whether your application has been approved. The grant will be issued as soon as we receive an invoice by your institution.

By December the following year you will have to hand in a report, consisting of a scientific part (5-10 pages), a lay summary and a financial statement issued by your institution on how the grant has been used.
