Penn Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders Pilot & Feasibility Grant
May 11, 2010, Volume 56, No. 33

The Penn Center for Musculoskeletal Disorders is once again accepting applications for its Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program. Submissions should be related to musculoskeletal tissue injury and repair, which is the broad focus of the Center, and grants are only eligible for Center members (if you are not a member but would like to become one, please visit www.med.upenn.edu/pcmd/memberinfo.shtml for instructions on joining). Pilot grants will be due on June 7, 2010 with a planned start date of September 1, 2010 and we are expecting to award up to 4 new grants in this round. Potential applicants are encouraged to send me a short e-mail, with your name, a rough title of your proposed project, a sentence or two (at most) describing the global hypothesis or objective, and a note as to which of the 3 Research Cores (Microarrays, Structure-Function Biomechanics, Imaging) you would use (core use is required for pilot funding). I would appreciate receiving this e-mail ASAP, so I can advise and guide you on the appropriateness of your application idea within the framework of the overall Center. For more information on our Cores and Center in general, please see our website at www.med.upenn.edu/pcmd.

The completed application should be submitted as a single PDF file to centermd@upenn.edu by June 7 at 5 p.m.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments.
