What is the Rosemary Anne Price Research Award?
During my research degree, I had the benefit of gaining some scholarship funding to attend a conference in the US that helped me on the way to completing my PhD. I was generously supported by the Kathleen and Margery Elliot Scholarship Fund in Birmingham, UK.
My mother, Rosemary, died from Multiple Sclerosis in 1991. Inspired by my study experience, I set up a similar bursary award scheme in conjunction with the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society. The Rosemary Anne Price Research Award helps support two promising research students to attend the bi-annual MS Frontiers research conference.
It's finding a cure for this awful disease that represents the best hope, in my view, for helping everyone affected by it. It's my small contribution to helping the researchers who may one day be able to make the really big discoveries. The award is currently funded until MS Frontiers 2019.
If you'd like to help me keep this award going beyond 2019, please feel free to make a contribution at my JustGiving page.
