The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation is inviting applications to its Investigator-Initiated Grants for Orthopaedic Research program.
Through the program, grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to new clinician-scientists who have demonstrated success as both a clinician and a researcher. The grant is intended to allow investigators to spend focused research time for a period of up to five years as a prelude to a long and productive career in academic surgery.
To be eligible, applicants must be an orthopedic surgeon licensed to practice and already working at an institution in the U.S. who has demonstrated success in research by receiving extramural research funding in the form of one or more K08 or K23 awards from the National Institutes of Health or equivalent funding source.
