The year kicked off with great news that four Scottish universities will lead new research into Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Motor Neurone Disease (MND) with a total of sixteen research programmes announced to tackle the two conditions. Health Secretary Shona Robison highlighted the news as ‘Scotland leading the way in clinical research and innovation’. This news is complemented by former Head of Chief Scientist Office, Mike Stevens, recognised in the New Year Honours 2017 list with a CB for his services to research and healthcare in Scotland. Funding and career opportunities are available across the NHS Research Scotland network so take some time to find out more in this issue of Research Bulletin and as always your ideas, feedback and contributions are welcome.
