A decade in the making - $35 million dollars committed to research

02 November 2022

Over the last decade MSWA have provided over $34 million in funding, making us the leading contributor to neurological research in Western Australia.

We are excited and proud to announce that in the 2022/23 financial year, we are committing a further $5 million to neurological research!

This new contribution is being used by recipients to advance studies to clinical trials for new treatments and medications, develop and trial new programs, educational tools, and provide insights. Research funding remains a key priority for MSWA as we strive to improve the lives of those living with a neurological condition.

We are pleased to once again be partnering with MS Australia (formally MS Research Australia), the International Progressive MS Alliance, the Perron Institute, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, and Telethon Kids Institute in projects they are leading across various neurological research areas.

“I am delighted to continue the funding of neurological research with emphasis on local research projects for which we believe will lead us to finding the cause, better treatments, and hopefully one day a cure for many neurological conditions.” MSWA CEO Melanie Kiely said of the announcement. “We partner with research institutions that align without vision and purpose, and all working towards a brighter future for people with neurological conditions.”

In recent years, thanks to our commitment to research, our understanding of MS and neurological conditions has improved. This investment would not be possible without Western Australians supporting our fundraising initiatives and lotteries which allow MSWA to make such a contribution over the last decade.

As always, our contribution is only made possible through our incredible fundraising community. This incredible achievement is a testament to the impact we can make by working together.
