The Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS), the Orthopaedic Research Education Foundation (OREF), and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) offer an expanded version of their long-standing successful grant writing, networking and career development workshop with an emphasis on clinical trials. Through this workshop, new investigators have developed the skills and learned the strategies to successfully secure funding for clinical, translational, and basic science research.
All attendees will meet senior investigators who manage highly successful research programs funded by the NIH, DOD, VA, and private foundations, and who have served on NIH study sections. Attendees who elect to submit a draft research plan have the opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced musculoskeletal researcher who provides mentoring, discusses funding strategies and offers recommendations so essential for a successful academic career.
A session on networking enables early-career investigators to effectively collaborate among their multidisciplinary peers and senior counterparts. Professional relationships forged at the workshop will continue to develop afterwards as the assigned mentors will provide assistance in grant application preparation beyond the workshop until grants are funded.
The program is open to junior faculty, post-doctoral researchers, clinical fellows, and residents with a commitment to pursuing an academic research career. Basic science and clinical investigators (PhD, MD, MS) with or without training awards are also invited to attend.
To date, participants of the ORS/OREF Grant Writing Workshop and ORS/OREF/AAOS New Investigator Workshop have received 71 NIH Grants totaling $55,825,033.
