In 2013 the Progressive MS Alliance issued its first request for applications (RFA), inviting researchers to apply for two types of award:
The Challenge Awards, designed to encourage scientific innovation
The Infrastructure Awards, designed to promote data sharing and knowledge management.
The response to the RFA exceeded our expectations. In total we received 195 applications from researchers in 22 countries, reflecting a global commitment to find solutions to progressive MS. Of the 195, 175 were for challenge Awards and 20 for Infrastructure.
The Alliance is now reviewing the applications through a peer-review process, and awards will be announced no later than August 2014.
