[ U.S. CDMRP – Peer-Reviewed Orthopaedic Research Program Applied Research Award ]


Event details

Date and time 27.05.2020  
Category Call for proposal
Aim: Through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP), the Department of Defense is announcing the Peer-Reviewed Orthopaedic Research Program (PRCRP) Awards. The PRORP Applied Research Award seeks applied research applications focused on advancing optimal treatment and restoration of function for individuals with musculoskeletal injuries. Applicants are encouraged to address how the proposed research will support patient care closer to the point of injury and/or allow patients to more quickly return to duty/work. It is expected that any research findings would also provide benefit to the general population. The Award is focused on applied research, defined as work that refines concepts and ideas into potential solutions with a view toward evaluating technical feasibility of promising new knowledge products, pharmacologic agents, behavioral and rehabilitation interventions, diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, clinical guidance, and/or emerging approaches and technologies.
To meet the intent of the award mechanism, applications must specifically address an FY20 PRORP ARA Focus Areas, which are listed at the end of this announcement.

Funding:        max. $725’000

Duration:      3 years

Eligibility: Applicants from international organizations or institutions are eligible to apply, and there are no citizenship restrictions. PI applicants must be independent investigators at or above the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent).

How to Apply: Pre-applications are submitted through the eBRAP platform. They should contain contact information, a preproposal narrative, and a list of collaborators and key personnel as suggested on the platform. Full applications (by invitation) will be made via a Grants.gov workspace. Full application packages can be downloaded from Grants.gov at any time.

Pre-Application Deadline: 27-May-2020, 5:00 p.m. EST

FY20 Topic Areas
  • Limb Stabilization and Protection: Development of rapid limb stabilization and novel wound protectants for severely wounded limbs to enable transport at the point of need.
  • Retention Strategies: Development and/or optimization of diagnostic capabilities, decision support tools, interventions, and/or rehabilitation strategies that can facilitate retention on duty for common musculoskeletal injuries. Biomarker studies are excluded. The current standard of care must be noted. The rehabilitation strategy to be used in the proposed study must be specified, as applicable.
  • Osseointegration: Identification of best practices to address infection, rejection, and/or failure of percutaneous osseointegrated prosthetic limbs.
