ISAKOS Research Grants Program

THANK YOU for your interest in the ISAKOS initiative for orthopaedic research and education. The purpose of the ISAKOS Research Grants Program is to provide ISAKOS members with a resource for funding the highest quality international research in arthroscopy, knee surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine.

ISAKOS Research Grants

ISAKOS will consider grant applications in four categories…

  • New Researcher - up to $50,000 per year
    • New Researcher Qualification: has not received external funding over $15,000; no significant history of publication, presentations or research/experiment participation
  • Osteoarthritis - up to $50,000 per year
    • Foster high quality research in early osteoarthritis and prevention, as well as treatment of osteoarthritis.
  • Clinical Outcomes - up to $50,000 per year
    • Support outcomes research through well-designed clinical trials to evaluate the efficacy of interventions in orthopaedic sports medicine
  • Countries with Limited Resources - up to $25,000 per year
    • Countries with Limited Resources will be defined according to the annual list published by the World Health Organization

The objective of the ISAKOS Research Grants is to encourage quality research in the topic areas of knee surgery, sports medicine and arthroscopy. Clinical relevance must be clearly noted in the abstract and specific aims and be obvious from the title and the study design. Both laboratory and clinical projects are suitable, but in either case clinical relevance must be explicitly and clearly described.
