Bozic"OREF and AAOS have both been very supportive of my work throughout my career. Having early successes helped me gain credibility. OREF grants come with a lot of visibility and publicity, which helps increase awareness in and engender support from the orthopaedic and research communities."-

Regis O'Keefe"The AAOS/OREF timeline is critical because it defines all of the awards available  for career development.  I was fortunate in my career to obtain funding from the OREF as well as a local foundation that provided support for the development of my laboratory.  These grants permitted me to obtain data that I later used in applications for funding from the National Institute of Health.  The timeline shows the feasibility of clinician scientists development in orthopaedics."
