AMSSM CRN Leadership Committee
  Guide a collaborative research network (CRN) to foster multicenter research and support AMSSM efforts in patient care, education, advocacy, reimbursement and sustainability of members.  
  In August of 2016, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) launched the AMSSM Collaborative Research Network (CRN) to further expand its research presence within the organization and to develop lasting collaborations external to AMSSM. The mission of the CRN is to foster collaborative multisite research among our members with a goal of advancing the practice of sports medicine.

CRN Advisory & Oversight Committee
  The CRN Advisory & Oversight Committee, comprised of thought and research leaders within AMSSM, is an important resource for the CRN Leadership Committee and essential for helping the CRN achieve its mission and initiatives. The A&O Committee regularly engages with the CRN Chair and AMSSM Research Director to stay up-to-date on progress and initiatives of the CRN.

CRN Goals

  1. CRN Grant Award
    • AMSSM and its Collaborative Research Network have awarded one $300,000 research grant to support quality, multi-site research seeking to address key priority areas within the field of sports medicine. The grant was funded by AMSSM and the AMSSM Foundation and was open to all AMSSM members, who were encouraged to connect with collaborators both within and outside of AMSSM. The grant was intended as seed money to provide data for major external grants to follow. In alignment with the mission of the CRN, proposals were required to include two or more sites. Additional Grant Awards are expected to become open in future years. You must be logged in to access the Grant Application.
  2. RFP ("The Stephen I. Katz Bridge to R34 Grant)"
    • The purpose of this RFP is to solicit research projects that will prepare a team of investigators for a competitive submission of an NIH R34 Clinical Trial Planning Grant and then to an NIH U01 Clinical Trial Implementation Grant via the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS). Investigators must demonstrate preparedness and capability to eventually meet the rigor required for an NIH caliber multisite clinical trial. The topic selected for study should align with AMSSM/CRN's mission and NIAMS' scientifically supported research areas. The CRN will work closely with the investigative team to complete their initial project and to develop an R34 submission, with the ultimate goal of obtaining a U01 Clinical Trial Implementation Cooperative Agreement Award. All PIs must be active members of AMSSM; PIs from both private practice and academic institutions are encouraged to apply.
  3. Avanos RFP
    • The AMSSM Collaborative Research Network (CRN) is pleased to release this request for proposals (RFP) addressing knowledge gaps in the management of osteoarthritis using cooled radiofrequency ablation techniques.
