AOSSM is proud to announce our historic Sports Medicine Multicenter Research Grant in honor of AOSSM’s 50th Anniversary. This is the largest research opportunity ever offered by AOSSM, with a total of $400,000 available. AOSSM members who are part of a multicenter research group looking to take their project to the next level and obtain underwriting from major funding bodies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) should apply.
This 50th Anniversary offering is funded through four special sources and partner collaborations, including AOSSM members’ generous support of the Million Dollar Drive, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) and our friends at The Aircast Foundation. Though the generosity of our members who donated to the Million Dollar Drive and our partners, this high-profile opportunity is among several projects planned by AOSSM in the coming years.
Finalists for the Sports Medicine Multicenter Research Grant will be invited to Chicago in March for an in-person interview with a group led by AOSSM President Kurt Spindler, MD. The official “Big Reveal” of the winner/Lead Principal Investigator will take place during a special presentation at the 2022 Annual Meeting July 13-17 at the Broadmoor Resort.
The application process is open now through January 15, 2022 for this outstanding opportunity a half century in the making! Additional details are available in the grant process timeline outlined below and on the official application site by clicking the icon.
