Clinical Osteoporosis Research School - CORS

The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) has approved an application granting funding of 3 Mkr per year to establish and run the Clinical Osteoporosis Research School.
Since osteoporosis is a widely spread public health concern that leads to fragility fractures, improved education for upcoming scientist in this field and stimulated research is highly warranted and important. The Clinical Osteoporosis Research School (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. The research school will be led by the director Mattias Lorentzon, together with a board consisting of four CORS researchers (from Umeå, Uppsala, Malmö/Lund and Gothenburg), two PhD students, one post doc and representatives from the involved core facilities. The guiding concept of CORS is to invite PhD candidates and their supervisors to jointly participate in seminars, theme symposia with international participation, clinical and experimental methodology workshops, summer schools and journal clubs organized by CORS and its members. CORS will enable young scientist to obtain a broader scientific network necessary to get established as senior researchers. In the longer perspective, CORS will stimulate national and international collaboration leading to improved research regarding novel therapeutic targets, improved diagnosis and fracture prediction.
