The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF), in partnership with the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF), is accepting applications to provide seed money for new investigators conducting research on biologic skeletal reconstruction, including implants and stem cells. Proposed research may be basic or clinical. Eligible Principal Investigator (PI) or co-PI must be an orthopaedic surgeon. PhDs and DVMs are eligible if they are affiliated with an orthopaedic department and co-PI is an orthopaedic surgeon. Indirect costs are not allowed. The PI must be a new investigator.  A new investigator is classified as an individual who has not received an R01 National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant or its equivalent (e.g., VA, DOD, and NSF) in the role of PI.  Applicants are limited to one submission to OREF per cycle regardless of category.  The same project may not be submitted in multiple categories, even if the PI is different.  The principal investigator may receive only one OREF grant of each type during his/her lifetime. Multidisciplinary research activity is strongly encouraged.  An orthopaedic surgeon principal investigator (PI) must be licensed to practice in the U. S. and be working in an institution in the U.S.  A PhD may serve as the principal investigator (PI) and must hold a faculty appointment in an orthopaedic department at an institution in the U.S.  A letter from the department chair confirming the appointment is required.
