Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis Approved for Major Funding Award from Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute to Create MS Patient-Powered Research Network
Date:12/19/2013

Patient-Powered Research Network has been amazing," said Robert McBurney, President and CEO of the Accelerated Cure Project for MS. "It is a huge honor for ACP to receive this award and to participate in this innovative national approach to transforming healthcare. Our partners across the MS community are committed to working with us to empower and engage patients in improving treatments and in finding a cure for this devastating disorder."   

The MS-PPRN was selected through a competitive review process in which patients, caregivers, and other stakeholders joined scientists to evaluate the proposals. Applications were assessed for the capacity of their network to collect complete, comprehensive clinical data, how well they will engage patients and other stakeholders, and their ability to maintain data security and patient privacy among other criteria.

All awards are approved pending completion of a business and programmatic review by PCORI staff and issuance of a formal award contract.
