Call for Research Proposals on Ageing in RMDs

Rheumatic Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) are among the most important conditions affecting health at different stages of life. Whether young, middle-aged or senior, changes in the function of the musculoskeletal system but also the responsiveness of the immune system occur thereby impacting the clinical manifestations of RMDs.

FOREUM Foundation for Research in Rheumatology wishes to instigate research, which will increase the knowledge on the impact of life course progression on the musculoskeletal and the immune system. The call is not necessarily restricted to study senior individuals only.  

All applicants considering submission of a proposal were invited to send a ‘scientific letter of intent’ by 7th January 2017 accompanied by a ‘lay summary letter of intent’, for review by patients.
