The MS Center Noord Netherlands cannot achieve its goals without cooperation with others. As of the origins of the center we work together with the Stichting MS Research for fundraising and financing our research. The first subsidy from Stichting MS Research in Groningen was awarded to Prof Dick Hoekstra 35 years ago. Recently, we added the Stichting MoveS to this cooperation. A recent gift from the Vriendenloterij has made the MSiPS biobank possible.
