02 August 2021

AO CMF Start Up Grants

The AO CMF Research and Development Commission invites you to submit your proposals in the wide range of research fields including unconventional and novel projects. The call for full proposals is now open for one-year projects. Particularly favored are projects broadly related to preclinical or clinical research in the fields of trauma and reconstruction in craniomaxillofacial surgery.

As AO CMF is currently running a consortium on "Translational approaches for bone constructs and their impact on facial bone reconstruction"—in case your project focus is aligned with this topic, you may have the chance to be involved as an affiliated center to the consortium.

The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2021 at 17:00 Central European Time.
