OREF/Stryker Robotic-Assisted Surgery for Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty Prospective Clinical Research Grant

$90,000 over a two year grant period
  • OREF, in partnership with Stryker, encourages proposals in support of cutting edge research that focuses on robotic-assisted surgery for primary total knee arthroplasty.
  • Well-crafted clinical studies that seek to quantify robotic-assisted patient outcomes in knee arthroplasty are strongly encouraged.
  • Clinical relevance must be clearly noted in the abstract and specific aims and be obvious from the title and the study design.
  • Proposed projects are expected to generate results that have a practical application.
  • The Principal Investigator 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, and NSF, etc.) as a PI.  New investigators who have demonstrated a sustained interest in research and excellence in their training are encouraged to apply.
  • Applications may be submitted by domestic or Canadian non-profit, public and private institutions of higher education, such as hospitals, medical schools, universities, and colleges.    
  • PI or co-PI must be an orthopaedic surgeon licensed to practice in the United States and working in an institution in the U.S.
  • PhDs or DVMs are eligible if working in or holding a primary or secondary appointment at an institution/orthopaedic department in the United States or Canada.
The next RFA date for this grant is TBD.
