2022 Research Grants Round launched by Royal Osteoporosis Society

The NuTH Funding Development Team would like to signpost that the Royal Osteoporosis Society has launched their 2022 Research Grants Round.

Even before the pandemic, the treatment gap for osteoporosis was startlingly wide, with around two-thirds of people missing out on the treatment they need. NHS backlogs have widened that treatment gap still further. For the duration of our Breaking the Silence Strategy 2022-2026, the Royal Osteoporosis Society will be focusing its grants programme on pioneering studies which can help close the treatment gap. This year, the charity is inviting applications for studies which aim to improve care and lead to quicker and more accurate diagnosis, by overcoming the barriers to rapidly implement evidence-based clinical interventions into wider practice. Projects which aim to reduce health inequalities in osteoporosis care are also welcomed.
