Our current research projects
We raise funds specifically to support research and, periodically, we make these funds available to researchers through our grants schemes.
Research projects we are currently funding
The purpose of each project grant is to support an established UK osteoporosis researcher to undertake a pioneering research project that is designed to answer a single question or a group of related questions.
The additive effect of vitamin K supplementation and bisphosphonate on fracture risk in post-menopausal osteoporosis
Time is of the essence: Revealing the 'bone clock' in humans
Standing up for bone health - is prolonged sitting a risk factor for osteoporosis
Improving uptake of Fracture Prevention Treatments (iFRAP): Development, feasibility and acceptability of a computerised decision support tool
Linda Edwards Memorial PhD Studentships
The purpose of each Linda Edwards Memorial PhD Studentship is to enable the best and brightest graduates to complete a PhD and therefore begin their research career in osteoporosis and bone research.
Influence of combined vitamin D supplementation and resistance exercise training on musculoskeletal health in frail older men and women
The impact of geographic and socio-economic variation on the incidence of hip fracture, and upon death and recovery after hip fracture
Early Career Grants
The purpose of each early career grant is to support a researcher in the early stages of their career through specific funding of a research project. The scheme aims to invest in the development of the next generation of outstanding osteoporosis researchers, therefore applicants will need to have demonstrated that they are on an upward trajectory with great potential, and are now ready to take the next step towards becoming an independent principal investigator.
Development and application of novel physical activity measurements in individuals with back pain and vertebral fractures
The purpose of each innovative grant is to support a highly innovative pilot study at the cutting-edge, to provide the critical data required to apply for funding from larger funding organisations.
