MISF 2023 Du Pré Grants for Multiple Sclerosis Researchers from Developing Countries

The MSIF Du Pré Grant enables multiple sclerosis researchers and clinicians from low- and middle-income countries to make short visits (up to six months) to established MS research centres, outside of their own country. *For 2023 we are open to applications for virtual or local projects to overcome the travel restrictions imposed by COVID-19.

During the visit or virtual project, participants either gain expertise or carry out parts of joint research projects. This benefits care for people with MS and supports collaborative research. Following the award, we expect applicants to use the newly developed expertise and networks, and continue MS research and/or clinical practice in low- and middle-income countries.

Visits may last between two and six months. Each grant is up to a maximum of £6,000 GBP, to cover the cost of travel and living expenses or to top up an existing grant to extend a visit. *For 2023 we are more flexible on the use of funds if virtual or local projects are proposed, but this must be agreed upon in the project proposal.
