The Role of STMP1 in Susceptibility to Paget’s Disease of Bone 

Investigators: Mr Navnit Makaram, Dr Sachin Wani, Prof Robert Hill and Prof Stuart Ralston from the Centre for Genomic & Experimental Medicine MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine, at the University of Edinburgh.

Mr Navnit Makaram explains new genetic research funded by the Paget’s Association -

EXCESSIVE BONE FORMATION IN PAGET'S DISEASE

 

Dr Anna Daroszewska, from the University of Liverpool, explains below, new research, funded by the Paget’s Association.

DEVELOPING A 3D BONE MODEL

Developing a Fully Human 3D Bone Organ Model of Paget’s Disease 

On hearing the news that the Paget's Association had approved funding for their Paget's research Professor Hulley, from the Botnar Research Centre at the University of Oxford, said, “Thank you!! This is very good news. It means a great deal to us to be able to develop our system in this way to be more helpful to patients. We are enormously grateful to the Paget’s Association for their interest and vision!”. 

EXPLORING GENETIC CONNECTIONS THROUGH TIME

Medieval Paget´s Disease
