The MSIF Research Alumni programme provides a dynamic link between recipients of MSIF’s research awards (especially the Du Pré Grants and McDonald Fellowships, formerly known as Du Pré Fellowships) and MSIF. Our research award recipients automatically become alumni on completion of their MSIF-funded research.
Every year at the ECTRIMS congress, MSIF hosts an alumni reception, where presentations by recent award recipients are followed by a drinks reception attended by alumni, MS society staff, clinicians and senior MS researchers, providing an important networking opportunity for the young researchers.
MSIF aims to stimulate international collaborative MS research, to engage the interest of young researchers, and to encourage them to remain involved in the MS field. The alumni programme aims to develop a lifelong relationship between alumni and MSIF, to promote scientific communication and to further develop a global MS research network.
