New Paget's Research Projects
The Paget’s Association is delighted to announce that it has, once again, agreed to fund new applications for Paget’s research grants. These funds were available to investigators in the UK, for all areas of research into Paget’s Disease of Bone. The application process was in two stages, with external expert reviewers involved at the second stage. Several grant applications were received and the Board of Trustees chose the following three applications to receive Paget's research funds:
Identification of Novel Genetic Markers for Paget’s Disease of Bone
Principle investigator: Dr Omar Albagha from the Centre for Genomic and Experimental Medicine, Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh.
Deciphering the Mechanisms of Pain in Paget’s Disease
Principle investigator: Professor Stuart Ralston from the Centre for Genomic and Experimental Medicine, Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh.
Medieval Lives: Exploring Paget’s Disease of Bone at Norton Priory, North West England
Principle investigator: Professor Silvia Gonzalez from the School of Natural Sciences and Psychology, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool.
Details of these projects can be found in our May and August 2017 newsletters - follow this link to view all newsletters.
