2013 AOSSM/ConMed Linvatec Research Mentoring Program
AOSSM initiated a research mentoring program in 2012 that will bring together individuals who have shown scientific promise at an early stage of their careers with senior clinician-scientists who have highly successful research programs. The first class of award winners include mentee Alfred Atanda MD (A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children) with mentor Mininder Kocher MD, MPH (Boston Children's Hospital), mentee Cory Edgar MD, PhD (Boston University) with mentor Kurt Spindler MD (Vanderbilt University), and mentee Joseph DeAngelis MD (Beth Israel Deconess Medical Center) with mentor Warren Dunn MD, MPH (University of Wisconsin).
AOSSM/RTI Biologics Three-Year Research Initiative Grant
AOSSM's Research Initiative Grant supports extended research projects with five installments of $50,000 over a three-year period (2013-2015). The latest grant was presented to Alexander Scott PhD to support his ongoing research titled "Intratendinous Injections of Platelet poor Plasma, or Platelet-rich Plasma with or without Leukocyte Enrichment for Patellar Tendinopathy: A Multi‐centre, Double‐blind, Randomized Controlled Trial," which explores the use of PRP therapy in treating sports injuries.
