CDMRP Reconstructive Transplant Research Program: Qualitative Research Award
|קרן||US Department of Defense|
|פקולטה||Life Sciences, Medicine, Social Sciences|
The RTR program challenges the scientific community to design innovative research that will foster new directions for, and address neglected issues in, the field of reconstructive transplantation (RT), specifically vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA)-focused research, also known as composite tissue allotransplantation. VCA refers to the transplantation of multiple tissues such as muscle, bone, nerve, and skin, as a functional unit (e.g., a hand or face) from a deceased donor to a recipient with a severe injury.
The intent of the Qualitative Research Award is to support qualitative research studies that will help researchers and clinicians better understand the experiences of individuals who are considering, or who have already received, reconstructive transplant surgery, and/or the reality of lifelong immunosuppression. Applicants must address psychosocial issues associated with VCA.
