The Rosemary Anne Price MS Research Award



You’ll hear a lot from companies about ‘corporate social responsibility’ and various schemes and initiatives they like to support. Price Perrott has made a specific commitment aimed at supporting innovation into a cure for Multiple Sclerosis amongst researchers in the field.

The Multiple Sclerosis Society aims to support people affected by MS and promote research into a cure for MS. Established in memory of Rosemary Anne Price, this research award is a ten year commitment with an annual donation made until 2019. The funding is used to provide a bursary to two nominated research students working in Multiple Sclerosis, helping them with the costs associated in attending the bi-annual “MS Frontiers” conference.

If you are a researcher in the field who would like to apply for this funding, or you’d like to follow our commitment in supporting MS, please contact Lee Dainty at the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society for more information.

We are delighted that Price Perrott is supporting the MS Society with The Rosemary Anne Price MS Research Award. Attending our 'MS Frontiers' event will be highly valuable to a student involved in the vital work to develop improved treatments and ultimately a cure for MS"
