Why is osteoporosis important?

Since osteoporosis is a widely spread public health concern that leads to fragility fractures affecting every second woman and every fifth man in Sweden, improved education for upcoming scientist in this field and stimulated research is highly warranted and important. As a direct result of the aging population, the predicted number of osteoporosis related fractures in the population will increase dramatically in the future. The fracture risk in Sweden is among the highest in the world.

About CORS

The national research school is funded by a specially designated grant from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) with up to five years of financing. CORS is a national initiative emanating from University of Gothenburg. Internationally renowned leading clinical osteoporosis researchers (in geriatric medicine, medical epidemiology, rheumatology, orthopaedics, endocrinology and health economics), included in CORS or as international collaborators, will provide a broad range of knowledge and high quality of research education.

Who can apply

PhD students registered at a Swedish university and active in osteoporosis or related research fields.  Travel and accommodation grants will be awarded to students.
