OREF/ASES/Rockwood Clinical Research Grant in Shoulder Care

This Funding Opportunity Announcement solicits investigator-initiated clinical research proposals in shoulder care by investigators who have demonstrated a sustained interest in research and excellence in their training.  The objective of the grant is to encourage new investigators by providing seed and start-up funding for promising clinical research projects.

Clinical relevance of all proposals must be clearly noted in the abstract and specific aims and be obvious from the title and the study design. All proposed projects are expected to 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: April 11, 2024
