The Start2Cure MS Initiative aims to accelerate scientific breakthroughs to deliver new medicines for patients with Advanced (progressive) MS via the Start2Cure non-profit foundation’s Global Research Grants and Awards Program. This program will deliver various research grants and awards that will allow to expedite (translational) research in key research areas that address unmet medical needs for Advanced (progressive) MS patients.

Our Program

The Start2Cure non-profit Foundation’s Global Research Grants and Awards Program provides grant support to an expanding network of the most talented scientists conducting high-risk, high-reward translational and potentially transformative medical research in Advanced (progressive) MS and related fields for which funding opportunities are limited.

From individual investigators to multidisciplinary collaborative teams, our awardees represent the best scientific minds in MS-related research and technological innovation and will become a vital part of our scientific International Network of Excellence.


Discovery Grant

The Discovery Grant is intended to encourage exploratory/developmental research by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of project development. 

Linked projects:

Repairing spinal cord lesions in MS with Focused Ultrasound


Therapeutic Innovation Grant

The Therapeutic Innovation Grant supports innovative research exploring novel approaches for targeting Neuro-restoration, remyelination and / or neuroprotection in the Central Nervous System.

Linked projects:

Regenerative gene therapy for MS


Seeding Grant

Aims at supporting highly innovative and original research, matching Start2Cure focus research area, by a young investigator (<40 years old). 


Clinical Trial Grant

Clinical trials are an essential step in translating research advances into health innovations and evaluating new interventions targeting Neuro-restoration, remyelination and / or neuroprotection in the Central Nervous System. 

Linked projects:

MACSiMiSE BRAIN Clinical Trial - Metformin Remyelination
