This Sports Medicine Multicenter Research Grant funding opportunity announcement solicits investigator-initiated research proposals focused on the broad area of sports medicine multicenter research trials. This specific funding opportunity is for established multicenter groups or networks that have not yet achieved major external funding like the NIH, DOD, PCORI, etc. The multicenter groups must be focused on clinical research addressing an important clinical problem that requires multicenter involvement to answer the clinical question(s). This multicenter proposal is a mentored grant especially for the PI and the investigator team. The normal critieria of publication is not the goal of this opportunity. Rather the goal is to establish the PI and team in securing major external funding as mentioned above.
AOSSM/OREF requires a practicing Orthopaedic Surgeon who is fellowship trained and who is a member of AOSSM
in the role of Principal Investigator (PI) or co-PI who may be collaborating with a PhD in order to foster the application of a full range of expertise, approaches, technologies, and creativity.
The application process will have two phases. Phase 1 is the submission of the written proposal as outlined in this Request for Application (RFA). Phase 2 is interviewing the top applicants following peer review of the written proposals. It is expected that interviews will occur at the AAOS meeting in March 2022 in Chicago. The PI’s will need to present their research proposal in person and address questions.
For complete details and requirements, please review the RFA on proposalCentral
