Call for Research Grants
The Paget’s Association is a charity which was founded in 1973 to:
- Offer information and support to those suffering from Paget's Disease
- Encourage and assist research into the causes and treatments of the disease
- Raise awareness of the disease among the medical profession and public at large
In order to further these aims the Trustees of The Paget’s Association will fund research projects that:
- Advance understanding of the causes of Paget’s disease and/or provide new insights into management of the disease and the prevention of complications.
It is expected that research projects will be awarded for periods of between 1-3 years. Although there is no formal upper limit for funding it is unlikely that projects with total value in excess of £100,000 will be supported.
In considering applications for research support the Trustees will take the advice of external referees as to quality and feasibility of the proposed research and its relevance to Paget’s disease.
An important part of this process is the role of lay-people in the decision making regarding the relevance to the Association’s objects of the grants awarded. If an application progresses to Stage 2 it is imperative that applicants adequately complete Section 2 of the form relating to a lay explanation of the application.
