The Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation welcomes applications for its Etiology of Hip Osteoarthritis Grant in honor of William H. Harris, MD.
Through the program, grants of up to $250,000 over two years will be awarded in support of investigator-initiated research proposals focused on the etiology of hip osteoarthritis. Proposals should encourage the deployment of innovative approaches and frameworks aimed at delineating the etiopathogenesis of this common condition and that include the use of various -omics platforms, national//international databases, AI/machine learning, and novel imaging modalities.
Applicants must have an orthopaedic surgeon as PI or co-investigator and must be licensed to practice and work in an institution in the United States. A PhD or DVM may serve as the principal investigator but must hold a faculty appointment in an orthopaedic department in the U.S.
Letters of Intent are due December 10. Upon review, a small group of applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
See the Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
