AOSSM, in partnership with ConMed Linvatec, is pleased to announce a one-time grant of $300,000 to support a research project that focuses on meniscal allograft transplantation. The purpose of this grant is to foster research for clinically relevant biomechanical studies, basic science studies, preclinical or clinical studies related to meniscal transplantation. Projects related solely to meniscus repair or preservation, meniscus regeneration, collagen implants, and other such topics will not be considered for this grant. At least one investigator on each application must be a full AOSSM member. Collaborative, multi-center studies will be strongly encouraged and will be given special consideration in the review process. Applications for this grant are no longer being accepted. Award notices will be made on or after July 1st with a start date of September 1, 2012. Inquires can be directed to Bart Mann, AOSSM Director of Research. AOSSM gratefully acknowledges ConMed Linvatec for the educational grant to support this activity.
