The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation welcomes applications for its Injectable Orthobiologics Knee Osteoarthritis Research Grant program.
Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of investigator-initiated research focused on the broad area of injectable orthobiologics for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, including but not limited to the following areas: determining clinical efficacy and safety of an injectable orthobiologic treatment(s) to provide decreased pain and improved function, preferably through the assessment of a balanced outcome scorecard measuring patient-reported outcomes and appropriate clinical outcomes; and assessing the mechanisms of action of an injectable orthobiologic treatment(s) in knee osteoarthritis to reduce pain and improve function or modify the progression of disease in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Areas of research focus may include translational preclinical or clinical research and preferably will include pilot human studies.
To be eligible, applicants must be Orthopaedic Surgeons licensed to practice in the United States and working in an institution in the U.S. with active clinical practice; the PI is required to be member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
