Q. How does the Group support Research? - A. Grants are available for HSP Research Projects

As a group we know there are normally research projects in progress into aspects of the condition. At present there is a mismatch between the funds we have available and the cost of such projects – we can't fund a whole project.

As committee we want to use our resources to help wherever we can. We believe it is appropriate to use our funds to support research projects, so we are prepared to use the funds to provide the “day-to-day” costs which often allow such projects to run more smoothly. Examples of such costs might be: resupply of laboratory reagents, extra laptop, other consumables.

We would like researchers to apply to us for grants of £10,000 for funding to support such projects. Written applications should be sent to the Secretary, HSP Group, 18, Lodmoor Avenue, Weymouth DT3 5AF, or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
