Program Description

The PRORP Idea Development Award is designed to promote new ideas that are still in the early stages of development and have the potential to yield highly impactful data and new avenues of investigation. This mechanism supports conceptually innovative, high-risk/high-reward research that could lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that will accelerate progress in the clinical care of combat-related orthopaedic injuries. Applications should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale. Innovation and military benefit are the most important aspects of the Idea Development Award. Applications that demonstrate exceptional scientific merit but lack innovation and high potential military relevance do not meet the intent of the Idea Development Award. Presentation of preliminary data is not consistent with the intent of the Idea Development Award mechanism. While the inclusion of preliminary data is not prohibited, the strength of the application should not rely on preliminary data, but on the innovative idea and the potential for impact on wounded Warfighters. Applications are being solicited in the following focus areas: Identify and reduce the secondary health effects (e.g., joint contracture, obesity, metabolic syndrome, poor bone health) that follow reduced mobility from traumatic neuromusculoskeletal injury; Strategies to inhibit neuromas at surgical/amputation sites; The application of novel and/or innovative technologies and materials in prosthetic and orthotic device development; Research toward osseointegration of upper extremity prostheses; Research on treatment of non-battle orthopaedic injuries that impact unit readiness and reflect historical return to work rates less than 50% or longer than 6 months.
