$25,000 Incubator grant awarded to Dr Jun Yan from the University of Queensland


Dr Yan’s exciting research could lead to new, personalised treatments for MS.

The generation of new ideas in MS research is absolutely critical to finding better treatments and a cure. Your support is making innovation in MS research possible by helping to provide Incubator Grants to MS researchers like Dr Yan. Dr Yan’s research aims to increase our understanding of the central nervous system and the brain of people with MS, which is important in creating personalised treatment plans for people with MS. 

“Due to the difficulty of accessing the brain, MS researchers cannot study live brain tissue in research.  

Our project overcomes this difficulty by using the brain cells derived from individual somatic cells – similar to living tissue. Our project can increase our understanding of MS defects in the brain and can help design personalised treatments for MS patients.” 

Thank you for making innovations in MS research like this possible through your visionary support. Your commitment is helping to make a better future for people with MS.  

In 2021, over $270k was awarded to 12 new incubator grants, providing seed funding to new, innovative research ideas. 

Thank you for driving vital MS research forward and empowering the MS community to live well.
