Paget’s Research Grants

The Paget’s Association’s Research Grant Round 2022

The Paget’s Association invites applications for Research Project Grants in all areas of Paget’s Disease of Bone. Collaborative research is strongly encouraged, including through our Paget’s Association Centres of Excellence (PACEs). Research grants are only available to lead investigators based in the UK, although international collaborators can be considered.

Applications are unlikely to be funded beyond £60,000 in total. The maximum period of funding will typically be three years, although shorter applications are anticipated and welcomed. Applications must include an assessment, within the proposed project, of the likely impact on and relevance to patients with Paget’s disease.

How to Apply for a Research Project Grant

This will be a two-stage process. Outline (first stage) proposals should be submitted to the Paget’s Association using the application form - Download the project grant application form >

SUBMISSION DEADLINE (FIRST STAGE): Tuesday 25th January 2022, 23:00 (GMT) START DATE: From September 2022

The Paget's Association's Research Grant Award Process

Each year the Association offers funding for research into various aspects of Paget’s disease. Researchers are invited to apply to the Association's Research Subcommittee for funding and the process to asess the applications is in two stages. The first stage is an application summarising the research to be undertaken and how it aligns with our strategies and priorities. If this basic application is approved by the Research Subcommittee, the researchers are invited to submit a second-stage detailed application.

The second-stage applications are dealt with by the Paget’s Research Grants Committee, which is external to the Paget’s Association’s Board of Trustees and is led by Professor Tim Arnett at the University College London (see below for committee members). This external oversight ensures independence in the assessment of the scientific rigour and value of submitted applications, in line with charity committee guidance. The Research Grants Committee requests written peer reviews regarding each application, from experts across the globe knowledgeable in the particular field concerned. The Research Grants Committee then assesses all the information before making recommendations to the Trustees of the Paget’s Association, advising which research projects should be funded.
