Direct Research Funding Options
We provide links for you to support critical CCSVI research projects. The projects involve pure research on CCSVI, its diagnosis, or its relationship to MS and other human diseases or syndromes, as well as Clinical Trials aimed at testing CCSVI treatment safety and effectiveness.
Dr Mark Haacke's MS-MRI Study at the MRI Institute for Biomedical Research in Detroit, Michigan
Testing for CCSVI requires a very specific type of MRI and ultrasound. By establishing a National Testing Campaign, (MS-NICE) Haacke’s goal is to help expedite the research of CCSVI by raising enough money to develop the processing, improve the protocols, and enhance research in the vascular aspects of CCSVI. As some examples in this direction, he is currently evaluating an MR flow quantification approach that covers most of the major vessels and may allow for visualization of the valvular motion as well similar to ultrasound. He is also looking into quantification tools to better establish what is normal and what is abnormal in CCSVI. His goal is to establish a broader clinical trial approach in the process.

Dr. Michael Dake's MS Innovations Fund at Standford University in Palo Alto, California
The MS Innovations Fund is dedicated to the development of novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of patients with multiple sclerosis and related neurodegenerative disorders through the exploration of associations with arterial and venous abnormalities. The Innovations Fund supplies resources to support both preclinical and translational research that directly impacts patients by providing leading edge management strategies.
