We kindly ask you to read through our code of conduct before signing up to the Research Network. It is vital that you understand and follow this Code when undertaking Research Network activities.

Research with animal testing

We're making great progress in research, but we still need to do more. Every step is crucial in helping us understand the causes of MS, so we can stop it for good.

Because of this, we believe that sometimes research involving animals is necessary to support our work. It can help us make important breakthroughs and develop new treatments for people with MS. Together, we are strong enough to stop MS.

You can read more about our policy on our website.

If you'd prefer not to be involved in projects which might involve animals (for example reviewing grant proposals for those projects), please select 'no' below.
