Clinical Trial AwardHT942524PRORPCTA 

  • up to USD$2.5M over 4 years (Research Level 1) or up to USD$3.25M over 4 years (Research Level 2)
  • Supports rapid implementation of clinical trials with the potential to have a significant impact on treatment or management of military combat or service-related orthopaedic injuries that significantly impact unit readiness and return-to-duty/work rates.
  • must support a clinical trial
  • animal or pre-clinical research studies not allowed
  • must address one of the following focus areas: limb stabilization and protection; retention strategies (battlefield care; return to duty); translation of early findings (soft tissue trauma; fracture-related infection); prostheses and orthoses
  • to be eligible for Research Level 2, applications must address the translation of early findings – soft tissue trauma focus are and include the Collaborative Care Option

  • Applications are encouraged from a spectrumresearch areas, including but not limited to translational and clinical research.
  • Qualitative research, population science, and health care services research specifically designed to understand the impact of orthopaedic injuries on female Service Members is also welcome.
  • applications must address women’s health as it relates to orthopaedic injury care/treatment or outcomes
  • clinical trials not allowed
  • Inclusion of female military and/or Veteran populations is highly encouraged for applications proposing clinical research. Use of military populations, datasets, or samples are not required; however, the application should demonstrate how the proposed research relates to issues faces by women serving in military settings.
