Review Process
Research grant and award recipients are selected through OREF's independent, peer-review process, which is modeled on the process used by the National Institutes of Health. Applications undergo a rigorous review process where each application receives two reviews. Applications are matched to peer reviewers who are experts in the same field as the applicant.

Who can Apply?
OREF invites applications for funding for qualified, clinically relevant orthopaedic research projects.
