If you are an active AO VET member pursuing musculoskeletal science research, we are offering you the chance to get your project funded, thanks to four new, 12-month AO VET Seed Fund Awards. But you must act quickly: the application deadline is 23:59 Central European Time (CET), Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

One AO VET Seed Fund Award of up to CHF 7,500 will be allocated in each region: AO VET North America, AO VET Asia Pacific, AO Vet Latin America, and AO VET Europe. The new awards, established to assist in the training of future leaders in veterinary orthopedics, carry no particular restrictions. Project proposals should address topics relevant to the clinical practice of veterinary orthopedics. Applicants must:

  • Be current AO VET members pursuing research in musculoskeletal science.
  • Work with an established investigator (assistant professor or more senior).
  • Submit a detailed mentoring plan.

If live animals are to be used in a proposed project, AAALAC compliance is required in accordance with AO policy.

The AO VET Seed Fund Award recipients will be announced by May 1, 2020. Good luck with your application!
