Grant Details

Provides funding for research that aims to help us better understand how to prevent and treat osteoarthritis, one of the most common causes of disability in adults.


The PI must be a new investigator. A new investigator is classified as an individual who has not received an R01 National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant or its equivalent (e.g., VA, DOD, NSF) in the role of PI. An orthopaedic surgeon principal investigator (PI) must be licensed to practice in the U. S. and be working in an institution in the U.S. Multidisciplinary research activity is always encouraged. A PhD may serve as the principal investigator (PI) if they have a primary or secondary faculty appointment in an orthopaedic department. A letter from the department chair confirming this appointment is required. DVMs are also eligible to apply.
