Clinical Research Support Grants The Foundation’s 2-year Clinical Research Support Grants support patient- and outcomes-oriented clinical investigations that address the specialty’s most urgent priorities. Consideration in 2022 is limited to proposals related to dental implants or anesthesia and patient safety. One grant will be awarded to the highest scoring proposal submitted in 2022.

Eligibility & Requirements

Researchers:

  • Applicant must have obtained a doctoral degree.
  • Applicant oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) must have completed an oral and maxillofacial surgery training program accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association (CODA).
  • If the Principal Investigator is not an OMS, there must be a qualified OMS as Co-PI and the relationship of the PI to the specialty must be specifically stated. The Co-PI must have an active role in the project with time commitment of the Co-PI contributing a minimum of 10% effort with time commitments stated in objective terms.
  • The OMS on the project must be a fellow or member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) and must be a donor of the OMS Foundation.

Application Procedures:

  •  All applications must be submitted online via our grant management software.
  • Only the most current NIH biosketch format will be accepted.
  • Applications that do not adhere to the guidelines will not be reviewed.

Clinical Research Support Grant

Request for Application (RFA)

The OMS Foundation has allocated $150,000 and is requesting applications for a two-year Clinical Research Support Grant. For this grant only, consideration will be limited to proposals for patient-based clinical research addressing either:

  • Safety of outpatient sedation/anesthesia during office-based oral and maxillofacial surgery
  • Dental implant research

Examples of outpatient sedation/anesthesia safety areas of interest include:

  • validation of monitoring advances and techniques
  • prospective/retrospective outcomes-based research, including creation and/or analysis of large datasets for predictors of optimization and safety.

Examples of dental implant areas of interest include:

  • validation of innovative techniques for implant placement, loading, or grafting to support implants.
  • prospective/retrospective outcomes-based research, including creation and/or analysis of large datasets for predictors of optimization and implant survival.

Projects may be led by collaborate investigative teams or individual scientists.

One grant will be awarded to the highest scoring proposal submitted via this RFA.

The award will be disbursed in two annual payments of $75,000 each, with a January 1, 2023 target date for the first disbursement.
