Research Supported by the OI Foundation The Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation invites applications for Research Grants. Two Types of Research Grants are Available to Qualified Applicants:
1) Michael Geisman Fellowship awards to post-doctoral trainees (that is, those with an MD, DDS, DO, or PhD) who are currently working on projects with clear relevance to OI, or who have projects that will enable them to develop expertise in OI research.
2)Seed grants for new or established Principal Investigators who seek to initiate basic or clinical research studies with clear relevance to OI.
Michael Geisman Fellowships: A qualified applicant must hold an MD, DDS, DO, or PhD, and be appointed at the level of a post-doctoral trainee, or equivalent, within an academic institution. An applicant should have completed their Ph.D. or their clinical training within the past five years. Fellowship awards provide up to $50,000 per year, which can be used for salary, fringe benefits, and supplies. Research must be done under the supervision of a mentor with training and experience in Osteogenesis Imperfecta research or research in a related field. Fellowship awards are for one year; a second year of funding may be approved based upon satisfactory performance during the first year of funding. Fellowship applications require that the mentor submit a copy of his/her NIH biosketch and a letter of recommendation on behalf of the trainee, which also confirms that the mentor will supervise the trainee’s research. Fellowship applications also require two additional letters of recommendation from scientists or clinicians who can comment upon the applicant’s training, ability, and potential to develop expertise in OI research.
Seed Grants for Basic Research: A qualified applicant must hold an MD, DDS, DO, or PhD, and have a faculty level appointment within an academic institution. Basic research seed grants provide up to $60,000 for one year. Seed grants cannot be used for Principal Investigator salaries or indirect costs.
Seed Grants for Clinical Research: A qualified applicant must hold an MD, DDS, DO, or PhD, and have a faculty level appointment within an academic institution or an affiliated health care system. Clinical research seed grants provide up to $120,000 over two years. Seed grants cannot be used for Principal Investigator salaries or indirect costs.
