Measuring mobility that matters to persons with multiple sclerosis: A co-design consumer engagement and Photovoice approach.

Through co-design and participatory action research we aim to establish which aspects of walking impact the participation in life activities of persons with multiple sclerosis and co-design walking outcomes that reflect the priorities of persons with multiple sclerosis. You will be asked to take photos of contexts where your walking impairment has impacted your ability […]

Neural mechanisms of pain: Relapsing and Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Cohort

Our main research aims to understand how people can usually distinguish a light touch from painful stimuli. However, for individuals with chronic conditions, this distinction can be altered and nonpainful stimuli (light touch and cooling) can be perceived as painful. In Multiple Sclerosis (MS), detecting early changes in sensory function and biological markers is crucial […]

The MS Family Study

Researchers from the Menzies Institute for Medical Research are seeking participants who come from families with multiple relatives affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). By analysing the genetic code of such families, the researchers want to better understand the inherited risk of MS.

Neural mechanisms of pain: Relapsing and Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Cohort

To investigate the molecular changes over the disease, we will meet the participants once every 3 months for 1h over a 2-year period. During each meeting, we will collect a venous blood sample (~5-10 minutes), ask you to fill out a survey (~10-20 minutes) and describe your response to a range of mechanical and thermal […]

Improving Bone Health in MS

This survey study aims to understand the current awareness and healthcare and lifestyle management of bone health, osteoporosis and fracture risk in people with MS. Participation is via completion of a 30 minute survey that can be accessed at the following link:
