MSWA is extremely proud to announce another record breaking contribution of $2.6 million to neurological research this year – the largest in Australia’s history.

Apart from the regular and ongoing support of a range of MS research projects, this includes:

  • $500,000 to the international research programme into progressive multiple sclerosis (MS);
  • $500,000 to WA research projects; and
  • $350,000 for research into other neurological conditions.

All of this would not be possible without the support of the people of Western Australia. MSWA thanks you for either donating, fundraising and taking part in one of our events or buying a lottery ticket. This generosity allows us to continue our ability to make this record breaking contribution towards research of MS and other neurological conditions.
