Musculoskeletal Research

The JHU Center for Musculoskeletal Research has established a Musculoskeletal Research Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program. The CMR funds are available to encourage innovative research in pathogenic mechanisms, basic science, and therapeutic approaches related to muscle and bone research. The goals of this program are to raise the visibility of the musculoskeletal research community and to support young investigators in the field. In 2015, the CMR has partnered with the University of Maryland at Baltimore to establish the Baltimore Center for Musculoskeletal Research (BCMR).
