New Osteoarthritis Research Grant Program Initiated by AOSSM and Genzyme Biosurgery
Date:2/25/2010

The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), in partnership with Genzyme Biosurgery, is pleased to announce a new research grant program to fund investigations related to early osteoarthritis (OA) and/or prevention of OA progression.

Rosemont, IL (Vocus) February 25, 2010 -- The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), in partnership with Genzyme Biosurgery, is pleased to announce a new research grant program to fund investigations related to early osteoarthritis (OA) and/or prevention of OA progression. This grant program reflects a growing recognition of the importance of osteoarthritis within the sports medicine and orthopaedics world. The program is an outgrowth of the Society’s conference on post-joint injury OA held in December 2008 and it underscores Genzyme’s long-standing commitment to osteoarthritis research and therapy.

“Genzyme is very pleased to continue our ongoing support of the AOSSM through this important research award. Our hope is that by providing greater opportunities to the orthopaedic sports medicine research community, more innovative ideas will be generated to help improve the lives of patients with this disabling disease,” said Jeffrey L Kraines, MD, Head, Medical Affairs and Senior Medical Director, Genzyme Biosurgery.

Two separate grants will be offered. One will provide an annual $50,000 grant for a clinical research study that is renewable for three years ($150,000 total), subject to a progress review. The second will be a one-time award of $50,000 to support a lab/basic science project to different investigators over a successive three year time period.

Proposed studies need not relate specifically to sports injuries and should also have broad applicability to OA in the general population. Projects involving viscosupplementation will not be considered for either grant. Applications will be reviewed for their potential impact on the field, the quality of study approach, and the ability of the investigator and site(s) to conduct and complete the proposed research.

The Principal Investigator on all applications must be an AOSSM member who has completed his or her training. It is expected that grantees will submit the results from their funded study to AOSSM for podium presentation and to the American Journal for Sports Medicine (AJSM) for publication. The submission deadline for both the clinical and basic science grants is August 1st, 2010. Award notices will be made on or after October 15th with a start date of January 1, 2011. Inquires can be directed to Bart Mann, AOSSM Director of Research (bart(at)aossm(dot)org). Additional information and application materials can be obtained on the AOSSM website at http://www.sportsmed.org/tabs/research/aossmgrants.aspx.

The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) is a world leader in sports medicine education, research, communication and fellowship, and includes national and international orthopaedic sports medicine leaders. The Society works closely with many other sports medicine specialists, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, family physicians, and others to improve the identification, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
