Grant Applications Are Still Available for Research on Injectable Orthobiologics
Grant applications are still available for research on injectable orthobiologics for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. Providing patients with safe, proven, effective treatment options is the goal of every orthopaedic surgeon, but there are areas of practice where clarity does not exist because clinical data is not available. OREF and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) are partnering to offer a research grant focused on clarifying the broad area of injectable orthobiologics for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.

The OREF/AAOS Injectable Orthobiologics of Knee Osteoarthritis Grant provides $50,000 in funding for proposals focused on the broad area of injectable orthobiologics for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. The Principal Investigator is required to be member of the AAOS. Don't miss this unique funding opportunity! Applications are due February 21, 2022. Learn more and apply today!
