Multiple Sclerosis Society continues to fund Vitamin D research -Oct 2018

National MS Society Awards $12M to 40 Research Projects in US and Elsewhere

"A team led by Anne-Louise Ponsonby at the Australian National University was also given support. These researchers will examine how the environment — including exposure to sunlight, vitamin D, and infections — might impact genes and possibly trigger disease onset."

Title: Identifying epigenetic factors involved in MS onset: utilizing population-based studies with genetic and environmental measures. Summary: Researchers at the Australian National University are studying a link between the environment and how genes are turned on and off to trigger the onset of MS.

Background: The cause of MS is complex and not fully understood, but is thought to involve the interaction between an individual’s genes and environmental factors, such as exposure to sunlight, vitamin D or infections. This research will take advantage of a large population study (the Australian-based Ausimmune Study) that was established to track MS triggering factors.
