The window to submit an AANA Research Grant application is open! The AANA Research Committee distributes grants for clinical or basic science research in arthroscopy or disorders amenable to arthroscopic treatment. The grant funding pool for 2023 has doubled from recent years and AANA hopes to fund one research project at US$50,000 and six projects at US$25,000. Fund amounts may vary depending on need and quality of work submitted.

The criteria for evaluation are:

  • Scientific Validity
  • Feasibility
  • Budget
  • Clinical Relevance
  • Ability to Complete

Special consideration will be given to applications focused on Level 1 research areas such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous needle tenotomy versus open tenotomy for lateral epicondylitis; arthroscopic meniscectomy versus physical therapy; arthroscopic labral reconstruction; and more.

Special consideration will also be given to general research areas such as studies on anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair/augmentation, sleep disturbance and musculoskeletal pathology as well as biologics, cell and injection therapies.
