The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), under the auspices of its Research Committee, is offering one research grant of up to $50,000 to support a research project related to early osteoarthritis (OA) and/or prevention of OA progression. This grant opportunity reflects the recognition of the importance of osteoarthritis and the preponderance of post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA) within sports medicine and orthopaedics. While basic science or translational projects are preferred for this grant opportunity, innovative study designs integrating clinical patients are eligible. Proposals are not required to relate specifically to sports injuries and should also have broad applicability to OA or PTOA in the general population. There are no limitations on previous peer-reviewed funding and any investigative team seeking such a grant must include at least one member of AOSSM in good standing.
The submission deadline is June 1, 2021.
