Study Area Hub

The UKMS register has collaborations with many other researchers from other universities who carry out active research into many areas of Multiple Sclerosis. By working with the MS Register they do not need to ask you for potentially repeating information that you may have already supplied to the Register. It was always one of our goals at the UKMS Register that we should be the first point of contact for MS research in the UK and working liked this allows you to contribute to further studies, should you choose to, in a safe and privacy protecting way.

Researchers may have a trial or study that you could be suitable to participate in. Studies have set 'criteria', characteristics that you may fit as a participant, such as, your age, gender, MS type, treatment history or approximate location in the UK. These characteristics may make you suitable to join, or at least register your interest in a study. The studies presented below match the criteria that you have entered on the UK MS register.

You do not have to join any of these studies and your participation in the MS Register will not be affected in any way should you choose not to. Once logged in you will have the choice to join or register interest for a particular study.

We currently have two active studies
