U.S. Army Neuromusculoskeletal Injuries Research Funding Announcement

$40,000,000 Program Announcements (#PA's) / #Funding Opportunity Announcements (#FOA's) aren't released very often, but the U.S. Army has done just that by releasing the "Restoring Warfighters with #Neuromusculoskeletal Injuries #Research Award (RESTORE)" funding announcement through the...

--Defense #Health Program (#DHP)

--Defense #Medical Research and Development Program (#DMRDP)

--Joint Program Committee 8 (#JPC8)/Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine Research Program (#CRMRP)

--To be administered by the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (#CDMRP).


Certainly a lot of words and acronyms, but we have the important information you need to know right here:


Relevant Dates:


--Pre-Application Submission Deadline: 9/3/2019, 5pm Eastern Time

--Full Application Invitations Released: October, 2019

--Full Application Submission Deadline: 12/16/2019, 11:59pm Eastern Time

--Peer Review: February, 2020

--Programmatic Review: March 2020

--Funding Notifications: March-April, 2020



Research/Funding Levels:


Research/Funding Level 1

--New ideas that represent innovative approaches and have the potential to make an important contribution

--The anticipated total (direct and indirect) costs will not exceed $500,000


Research/Funding Level 2

--Advancement of laboratory discovery, population-based studies, or #clinical knowledge into clinical application and acceleration toward a clinical solution

--The anticipated total (direct and indirect) costs will not exceed $1.5M


Research/Funding Level 3

--#Clinicaltrial s with the potential to have a significant impact on Warfighters who have incurred neuromusculoskeletal injuries

--The anticipated total (direct and indirect) costs will not exceed $3M



Focus Areas (our emphasis):


--Solutions that accurately #diagnose neuromusculoskeletal injuries in #training and #operational #environments to optimize #management and #treatment decisions


--Solutions to accelerate #recovery and restore #Warfighter #performance in training and operational environments


--Objective support tools to enable providers to assess function and performance throughout treatment and predict long-term outcomes


--#Painmanagement strategies following #acute and/or #chronic neuromusculoskeletal injury that are fast-acting, long-lasting, and free of adverse side effects


--Optimization of Warfighter performance following limb trauma or loss. Examples include, but are not limited to, #prosthetics and #orthotic solutions (e.g., intuitive control and sensation, interface, interoperability, prescription, and training), as well as #regenerative #rehabilitation solutions addressing #peripheral nerves, #skeletal muscle, and/or bone. Technology development is allowed. Regenerative studies without a rehabilitative component are not responsive to this funding opportunity
