NBA & GE Healthcare Orthopedics: Call for Proposals

Last year, GE Healthcare and the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced a collaborative effort to support and promote sports medicine research – with the goal of benefiting the health and wellness of NBA players and all athletes. The NBA & GE Healthcare Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Collaboration released the second in a series of calls for proposals on June 16th. Up to $1.5 million is available to support research projects targeting the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of myotendinous injury. These “muscle strains, tears, ruptures or pulls” are common and can impair performance, limit playing time and disrupt a career. Prevention programs for some specific myotendinous injuries have been described for varying levels of play; however, there is little evidence supporting many of these strategies. Similarly, the best techniques for clinical assessment, choice and timing of imaging modalities, treatment and return to play strategies are unclear. More detailed information about this research funding program, including specific topics to be addressed and how to apply, can be found on the program’s website. The application deadline is Sept. 8, with announcement of winners targeted for November 2016. Questions about this call for proposals should be directed to GE_NBA.Research@ge.com. more
