    Young Investigators Encouraged to Apply for USBJD Grant Mentoring Program -- Application Deadline July 15th

    Date: July 02, 2010

    The United States Bone and Joint Decade (USBJD) has developed a grant mentoring program to provide early-career clinical investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers in our field to assist them in securing funding and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career. ASBMR is pleased to provide financial support for this important program.

    This grant mentoring program is open to promising junior faculty, senior fellows or post-doctoral researchers nominated by their department or division chairs. It is also open to senior fellows or residents who are doing research and have a faculty appointment in place or confirmed. Basic and clinical investigators, with or without training awards (including K awards) are invited to apply. Investigators selected to take part in the program attend two workshops 12-18 months apart and work with faculty between workshops to develop their grant applications. The next workshop is scheduled to take place in late October 2010 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The unique aspect of this program is the opportunity for attendees to maintain a relationship with a mentor until their grant application is funded. The deadline to apply is July 15, 2010. To apply for this program, please go to the USBJD website.
