Latest Research Results
Since 2013, the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition has funded 55 MSA research grants at 34 well-respected institutions around the world. Our goal is to support the most promising MSA research regardless of geographic location. The MSA Coalition Research Grant Program features a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) made up of renowned experts in MSA who ensure that MSA Research Funds are invested in the most effective way possible. We are very proud of our role in encouraging collaborative efforts and funding global research aimed at uncovering the cause of MSA, improving diagnosis, discovering better treatments and moving us closer to a cure.

Interviews with the Researchers
Larry Kellerman, PhD, interviewed Dr. Wassilios Meissner & Dr. Annamaria Vallelunga to discuss A serum miRNAs signature as a potential biomarker for MSA. (click image below to view the webinar)
Research Dollars Making a Difference
A research grant from the MSA Coalition helped support this trial, the results of which show that “physiotherapy is feasible, safe and improves gait performance in patients with multiple system atrophy”.
