Accelerating Research on Intervertebral Disc (ARID)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage the submission of grant applications proposing studies on basic biology of the intervertebral disc. The NIAMS invites investigators from all areas of cell biology, bioengineering, and orthopaedic research to consider individual or collaborative efforts to address these needs. Applications that accelerate an understanding of basic research on the intervertebral disc and/or develop new directions on the factors that lead to disc degeneration are particularly encouraged.
