Participate in Research Studies

Posting a Study

Researchers are committed to finding solutions for everyone affected by MS — the very people who hold the key to the answers. Without participants in research studies, MS research would come to a standstill.
People with MS, and sometimes family members, can help advance MS research by:
  • responding to surveys online
  • sharing their voices and ideas through NARCOMS and iConquerMSTM, organizations that amass volunteer-submitted information
  • volunteering for clinical trials and other studies
  • donating DNA from saliva and blood samples
  • arranging for brain or spinal cord tissue donation to a tissue bank; this type of donation is incredibly valuable and truly appreciated by all who are involved in moving toward a world free of MS.  Blood samples also can be donated for use in MS research studies.
Assess each opportunity and make an informed decision before agreeing to participate — understand the possible benefits and risks. See our Guide to Participating in Clinical Trials.

Everyone can get involved to support research investment, or advocate so that Congress provides funding for MS research and supports other efforts such as understanding incidence and prevalence.
