MS Research Treatment & Education

MS Research Treatment and Education (MSRTE) is a charity dedicated to furthering our understanding of Multiple Sclerosis and developing better treatments through research and education.

Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a progressive condition causing nerve damage and disability. Each year thousands of people are diagnosed with MS, in fact, in the UK MS is one of the most common causes of disability affecting young people and once diagnosed will affect the rest of a persons life.

    We believe our research into MS is vital but science alone is not enough. At MSRTE we have three main aims:

    *Listen to people with MS and those who share their lives

    *Learn more about the problems they face everyday

    *Act to address and alleviate those problems

    Listening, Learning, Acting: With you help we could look forward to seeing the back of MS.
