OREF Total Joint Replacement Grant in Honor of Dr. Jorge O. Galante, MD
Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation
- OREF encourages investigator-initiated research proposals focused on total joint replacement. Areas of research focus may include: New surgical techniques, devices, joint implant designs, joint implant materials, or the biology of disease and repair.
- OREF strongly encourages the submission of well-crafted basic, translational and clinical studies.
- Clinical relevance must be clearly noted in the abstract and specific aims and be obvious from the title and the study design. All proposed projects should generate results that have a practical application. It is expected that upon completion of the proposed project, the principal investigator will be well poised to pursue NIH/DOD or the equivalent large-scale funding to continue to advance the area of research.
Deadline for Letters of Intent: Oct. 16, 2019
- Domestic, non-profit, public, and private institutions of higher education, such as hospitals, medical schools, universities, and colleges.
- Multidisciplinary research activity is always encouraged. The principal investigator (PI) must be an orthopaedic surgeon or a full-time researcher (e.g., PhD, DVM, DO). The orthopaedic surgeon must be licensed to practice and working in an institution in the United States. A PhD serving as PI or co-PI must hold a primary or secondary faculty appointment in an orthopaedic department. A letter from the department chair confirming this appointment is required.
- The PI must be a new investigator. A new investigator is classified as an individual who has not received an R01 National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant or its equivalent (e.g., VA, DOD, NSF) as a PI.
