The Business Innovation Competition (BIC) is an ORS program designed to highlight the commercial potential of new technologies for musculoskeletal research and therapy. Researchers, clinicians, and engineers at all levels are invited to participate in this exciting program! Participants will be given the opportunity to validate the market potential of their technology and develop a commercialization plan through expert mentorship and feedback to assist in translating their ideas from bench to market. The competition includes interdisciplinary feedback and collaboration between industry, academics, and clinicians.
Part II of our popular grant writing course! This interactive workshop includes a Specific Aims Page Lab providing participants with the opportunity to prepare and revise a specific aims page, the most important page of the grant application, with expert faculty. A subset of grant submitted by registrants will be reviewed during a LIVE Mock NIH Study Section. Don’t miss out on the networking and mentoring opportunities and the real time feedback you will receive from faculty and NIH officers.
This grant provides investigators at any stage of their career an opportunity to visit a research lab for the purpose of collaboration and knowledge exchange.
These grants recognize clinician scientists and clinical investigators in the early stages of their career who have played a key or leading role in an original research project in clinical or translational medicine, and who have demonstrated excellence in training and a commitment to orthopaedic research.
This online course is featured via LearnORS and provides a foundation to assess and interpret the available orthopaedic literature, and to participate in scientific progress by providing the tools needed to initiate new or contribute to existing clinical research programs.
LearnORS is an online platform that offers a complete learning experience in a format to meet learners’ educational needs.
We will develop a vertical mentor ladder such that senior trainees (e.g. Postdocs and residents) will provide mentoring to junior trainees (Graduate/medical/ undergraduate students), while also being mentored by a more senior scientist (e.g. Faculty, Industry Scientist).
This workshop on Exploring Funding Mechanisms: Beyond NIH will provide ORS meeting attendees the opportunity to learn about alternative funding opportunities as well as the application and review process.
This Networking session will follow the ‘Exploring Funding Mechanisms Part 1: Beyond NIH and provide ORS meeting attendees with an opportunity to better understand funding policies of the agencies represented in Part 1, as well as the NIH, through one-on-one personal interaction with program staff.
A career in research is often reliant upon building a portfolio of research projects, managing risk versus reward, and establishing a niche. This session covers the management of research directions at various career stages: from transitioning your postdoctoral work into an independent laboratory as an early investigator to expanding project boundaries as an established investigator.
