Helping people with multiple sclerosis (MS) make good food choices through community-led research and education

Guided by the needs of the MS community, our research team is exploring the links between diet, nutrition and MS, in order to provide you with the latest evidence-based guidance for eating well with MS.

The MS Nutrition Research Program was formed in 2016, when Professor Lucinda Black began investigating the links between diet and MS, supported by an MSWA Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. Since then, the research program has grown into a team of researchers, students and national and international collaborators, working with a common goal to resolve the confusion about diet for people with MS. We have co-designed this website with people with MS to keep you up to date on our latest research findings.
