Half of women and one fifth of men will break a bone due to osteoporosis. The Royal Osteoporosis Society research grants programme aims to change that, by offering researchers at various stages in their careers the opportunity to apply for funding that will allow them to undertake pioneering research and improve our understanding of osteoporosis.

Dr Kassim Javaid, Associate Professor at NDORMS is one of the successful applicants for his research proposal into real world data audits to help identify high-risk fracture patient and the impacts on secondary fracture prevention.

Kassim said: "We were delighted to hear that the ROS has supported our research project. Our research will help patients, who have recently broken a bone after a fall, receive the best care possible to reduce their risk of another broken bone. Our team of researchers and patients will work to understand the ingredients that make fracture liaison services run well. We will also identify patients at higher risk of another hip fracture and may need to be fast-tracked to more stronger bone treatments."

Dr Caroline Sangan, Research Manager at the ROS, said: "We've been really impressed with the quality of applications we received as part of this year's research grants programme. Five project grants, one early career grant and one innovative grant have been chosen.

"Each application was reviewed by our Research Grants Assessment Panel before being peer reviewed, to ensure that we fund research of the highest standard that also meets our objectives as a charity. We were pleased to see this year's successful applicants included detailed plans on how they'd involve individuals with experience of osteoporosis in their research, with over 50% even including them as a co-applicant."
