The Charcot Research Fund

Help us Make a gift or leave a legacy

In academic laboratories and research centers, budgets for research into multiple sclerosis exist but are limited. Every year, research teams look to the Belgian Charcot Foundation.
To strengthen and stimulate multiple sclerosis research in our country, the Belgian Charcot Foundation has decided to increase the total amount of subsidies to be distributed.
The Charcot Fund 2019 for basic research is thus increased to € 500,000 to be allocated to projects likely to advance the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
These subsidies are managed by universities or hospital centers according to the same rules and procedures as the subsidies allocated by the National Fund for Scientific Research.
Since its creation 30 years ago, the Charcot Fund has supported more than 200 researchers and / or research teams in 27 renowned university laboratories * in Belgium.
