USBJI/Bone and Joint Canada - Young Investigator Grant Monitoring
     and Career Development Program
Spring Workshop: April 6-8, 2018 / Hyatt Rosemont (Chicago), IL

The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) and Bone and Joint Canada are dedicated to increasing research of musculoskeletal diseases. To keep pace with the high and increasing burden of these diseases, a higher level of research performed by young investigators in the musculoskeletal diseases is required, and future levels of research assured. This is particularly important given the current environment for research funding and academic careers.

In response, the Young Investigator Initiative is a grant mentoring and career development program providing early-career investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers in our field to assist them in securing funding and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career.

Application Submission Deadline: January 15, 2018
