Edith Cowan University (ECU) and MSWA have formed a research partnership to identify the best ways to personalise treatments for people living with a neurological condition.
This research aims to develop a systematic profile of people with MS, Stroke, Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
ECU Executive Dean Medical and Health Sciences Professor Moira Sim will oversee the research, which will be funded over 12 months.
“This will provide a foundation for future research projects that will benefit individuals living with neurological conditions,” Professor Sim said.
“While the funded research projects are currently in preliminary stages, we’re confident that through holistic profiling we will be able to improve day-to-day life for many people living with a neurological condition.”
MSWA CEO Marcus Stafford AM said he was delighted to be able to fund this important work.
“This is the first year we’re funding research through ECU and we’re incredibly excited to see what may be possible,” Mr Stafford said.
“This year we’ve contributed $3.5m to research, $1m of which is allocated to researching a variety of neurological conditions, showcasing our commitment to supporting conditions in addition to MS.”
