Musculoskeletal impairments like back pain and arthritis are a top reason for visits to physicians' offices. The United States Bone and Joint Decade/Initiative (USBJD/I) is now offering a program to encourage early-career basic and clinical investigators in academic careers.
USBJD/I’s Young Investigator Initiative Grant Mentoring Program consists of workshops and opportunities to work with experienced researchers as well as assistance with securing funding and other academic career “survival skills.”
The deadline for applications is July 15, 2011. For more information, please visit the USBJD/I website.
