  • Sports Injury Research Funding Available

    RESEARCH FUNDS AVAILABLE. Preliminary Grant Applications due May 13, 2005.

    The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment
    (NOCSAE) is a non-profit standards setting organization and a leading
    force in the effort to improve the safety of athletic equipment. In
    its effort to commission research, NOCSAE solicits grant proposal
    from any and all qualified investigators. The scope of the grants
    considered for funding include basic and/or applied research bearing
    a relationship towards increasing our understanding of sports injury
    mechanisms and injury prevention through the use of protective sports
    equipment. Priority is given to proposals focusing on recurring
    injury where the injury is either "catastrophic," "serious," and/or
    "costly". Awards are based upon scientific merit as ranked by a
    national panel of experts and upon the priorities of the NOCSAE Board
    of Directors. Recent priorities have been, but are not limited to,
    understanding and preventing mild traumatic brain injuries.

    Applying for Funding. Due to the diversity and complexity of
    potential research proposals, a two-phase application procedure is
    required. Those interested in seeking funding are required to first
    submit a Preliminary Grant Application. This brief, one page
    proposal is reviewed by the NOCSAE Board of Directors. From these
    preliminary proposals, the Board votes at their June meeting to
    invite full proposals due in November 2005, with funding starting in
    February 2006.

    Further details on the grant application process can be found at or contact J.J. Crisco, Ph.D.
