Treatment research continues for multiple sclerosis.
Two researchers at the University of Tasmania’s Menzies Institute for Medical Research have received an innovative multiple sclerosis research fellowship that was created to drive basic scientific research into treatment development and the doctor’s office.
MS Research Australia and The Macquarie Group Foundation founded the three-year, $750,000 program. It is unique in that it will bring together basic science researchers and therapy-development researchers to try to convert laboratory research into disease solutions.
The grant was awarded to Professor Bruce Taylor, a Menzies researcher who is also a neurologist at the Royal Hobart Hospital, and to Dr. Kaylene Young, a neuroscientist whose long career in laboratory research has focused on mechanisms that the brain uses to repair itself.
“We are very proud that two of our senior scientists have been chosen through a competitive process to achieve this, the only nationally funded, paired fellowship in multiple sclerosis research,” Professor Alison Venn, director of Menzies, said in a press release.
