American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine Invites Proposals for Biologics & Post-Traumatic Osteoarthritis Research

The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) welcomes applications for its Biologics & Post-Traumatic Osteoarthritis Research Grant program.

Through the program, a single grant of up to $250,000 over up to thirty-six months will be awarded to support a clinical, translational or laboratory-based research project focused on post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the major peripheral joints (knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, elbow).

While extensive research has been funded through AOSSM to improve the short- to mid-term outcomes after sports injuries (return to sport, two-year patient reported outcomes, etc.), this funding mechanism is specifically designed to support studies that investigate the pathophysiology, prevention, treatment, or long-term repercussion of post-traumatic osteoarthritis and the role of biologic treatments in PTOA. The mechanism is not intended to be joint specific, and studies that would have implications for multiple joints/sub-disciplines of sports medicine will be considered favorably. Collaborative studies that bring clinician-scientists and laboratory scientists together towards a common aim are strongly encouraged.

To be eligible, applicant teams must include at least one member of AOSSM in good standing.

See the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
