Dr Petratos was the only Australian to receive project funding in 2014 from the International Progressive MS Alliance and his Senior Research Fellow, Dr Christopher Siatskas received $290,000 in MSRA funding in 2011. The group is investigating the underlying pathology of progression, and the MSRA funding is assisting the investigation of a new strategy for developing a therapy that limits damage to nerve cells and stops the progression of MS.
